LEGASPI BY RICK OWENS pays homage to a major inspiration in Owens’ life. The late Larry Legaspi is known for his daring ’70s designs, working for with KISS and Patti LaBelle, leading to him becoming the central inspiration in Owens’ FW19 runway collection, “Larry.”
The book also features interviews with Patti LaBelle, Paul Stanley, Valerie Legaspi, and Pat Cleveland, offering an intimate glimpse into Legaspi’s world before he died of AIDS in 2001, as well as photographs that capture both the creatives’ works.
In RICK OWENS PHOTOGRAPHED BY DANIELLE LEVITT there are 150 color and black and white photographs. They capture various avant-garde looks from Owens’ collections in the past decade.
