rick owens

rick owens (rođen kao richard saturnino owens 16. novembra 1962.) amerikanac u parizu. partner životni i poslovni čudesne michele lamy. kreator od kojeg uvek očekujemo rukavicu u lice. izazov. korak-dva barem napred.  urban. nepredvidiv. hrabro gradi svoju, samo svoju buntovničku estetiku. onaj koji rizikuje i ne plaši se toga. razbija tabue, jer ni nisu za nešto drugo. užasno dobar dizajner nameštaja. nema potrebe da prikriva stvari poput one da nije završio svoju institucionalnu art edukaciju, da je pre veze sa michele lamy bio u vezi sa jednim muškarcem (preko kojeg su se i upoznali)… jedan od najboljih. politički osvešćen. subverzivan. (još) jedna poprilično oslobođena osoba. razbija tabuizirani koncept nepristupačnosti visoke mode onima koji nisu po kalupu. ekcentričan u pozitivnom smislu.

spring-summer 2014  womenswear rick owens

u predstavljanju ove kolekcije u parizu rick owens je  angažovao 40 stepping dancerki iz afro-američkih koledža, našao ih je na youtube kanalu. njihov ples je pandan cheerleading plesu vitkih, zgodnih devojaka. njih 40 su različitih boja koža, obima struke, telesne građe, visine…  “odbacivši konvencionalnu lepotu, stvaramo sopstvenu”, rekao je owens. slavljenje različitosti i njene lepote. i bes na licima je deo predstave. ovo jeste bila predstava, više od običnog predstavljanja kolekcije. predstavljena je i rasa i pol. zluradi smatraju da se radi  tek o proširivanju tržišta na gojazne kojih je sve više posebno u americi, ali ja ne želim da verujem da je priča tako banalna, pošto ovaj dizajner to nije.  on slavi žene svih boja, veličina, oblina, nesavršenosti… lepo, dirljivo i hrabro.  i nalik njemu. a publika na reviji… pretpostavljam da nije imala uobičajeno ravnodušan izraz lica…

Katie Shillingford: I think it was very admirable that a designer with such a big brand, who is commercially successful too, had made such a brave choice. There is not enough of that in the fashion industry today, no one is brave enough to take a risk because everyone is worried about selling clothes. Of course selling clothes is the whole point but I do think we’ve lost the sense of ‘show’ and that is a real shame. I wanted to applaud this fearless move and celebrate women of all colours and sizes. That’s also why I wanted to show a lot of nudity, because for me it wasn’t just about clothes, it was about a really powerful message and putting that into print form.

What does Rick Owens’ work represent to you?
MS: I like collaborating with designers who have a creative vision that extends beyond just the clothes. Rick is an artist in that sense. He has built his own world and he finds various forms for its expression. There was a real fearlessness and sophisticated power to the Spring/Summer 2014 show, with the steppers, that moved me emotionally and intellectually. On the one hand it was positive, progressive and blew so many ugly and bourgeois constructs out of the water, but on the other it was still powerful and aspirational. There is a tendency, particularly within fashion, to associate progressive politics with a shutting down of fun or glamour. This show was proof that it is still possible to make potent political statements within an industry that is so often politically compromised and a part of the everyday problems that surround us.
KS: For me it was important the models we chose were different shapes, sizes and colours – all representing beauty in different physical forms. As we wanted to show a lot of skin within the story, the casting was the most integral part. The show was aggressive and fearless but I wanted to do something that had the attitude but that was also beautiful and showed a softer side of women. Matthew was the only photographer I could really picture shooting it and his work popped into my head as soon as we talked about the feature.
