Rick Owens' avant-garde aesthetic has garnered an extraordinary cult following. Since winning the CFDA's New Talent award, Owens' rock-inspired designs have wowed the fashion crowd.  With his partner Michèle Lamy, he conceives of collections that marry Classical influences to Brutalist design and an ascetic tribalism. Asymmetrical tunics, sarouel shorts and trousers, elongated t-shirts, and Owens’ signature Geobasket sneakers and frequent collaborations with adidas present a powerful conception of masculinity at once ancient and futuristic, priestly and profane.
