Since launching his eponymous label back in 1994, Rick Owens has continuously stirred the imagination of the industry at large with his grunge-meets-glamor design ethos. Controversial in many respects, the American artist has pushed the sartorial envelope beyond where most others are willing to go — remaining steadfast in his pursuit to blur the gender gap. Relentlessly promoting the age-old androgyny agenda season after season, garments flow freely from the body, while various textile applications, including sheer, leather and suede, for the most part, feature heavily throughout. Opting to steer clear of garish prints and patterns, the “Godfather of brutal chic,” instead keeps to monochromatic color schemes — allowing shapes and silhouettes to take center stage.

The accompanying video, put together by YouTube user Lucas R.C., highlights Rick Owens over the years — 2002 to 2018 – as he ceremoniously closes his fashion show presentations to the delight of onlookers. Embodying his own artistic philosophies, the eccentric designer can be seen sporting his own creations — showcasing how his garments are to be worn.

In case you missed it, the Rick Owens x adidas partnership has reached its conclusion.
