The Materiality of Rick Owens

In the lead up to Rick Owens AW14/15 collection, fluoro reflects on the designer’s diversity. When fluoro spoke to Owens about his furniture collection, Prehistoric, his innovative approach to materials was something that evidently carried across to his fashion.

“To me, the materials are a starting point when I design something,” said Owens. Speaking of how the use of certain materials can enhance a message he says, “It’s like the world around us, it’s a mix of high and low. If you have too much of one or the other it can be nauseous, but to appreciate one you need the other. It’s all about balance.” View fluoro’s interview with Owens in full here.

Rick Owens will present his AW 14/15 Menswear Collection during Paris Fashion Week on Thursday 16 January 2014 at 12.30pm CET.
