If I had to list some fashion labels that have influenced, inspired and shaped my personal style – one of them would definitely have to be Rick Owens.
American born, now based in Paris, his women’s label is heavily rock-inspired chic, minimal, drapey, edgy yet feminine. He’s often talked about as being a trend-setter of trend-setters, and one of the few designers who is worthy of sitting on the pointiest end of fashion.
OK, perhaps some of his clothes are possibly too edgy (and expensive) for me, but his latest SS10 collection is just gorgeous. Gah, it’s more than gorgeous, it’s sublime. I can seriously feel myself considering what I could go without (like my family’s summer holiday) in order to buy one of his jackets.
See the rest of Rick Owen’s collection at Net-A Porter. It’s brilliant I tell you!
