Rick Owens DRKSHDW
DRKSHDW Mastadon Socks
After relocating to Paris in 2001, the Southern Californian designer Rick Owens quickly expanded his underground following for his glamorous grunge clothing. Quickly becoming the go-to designer for slim-fitting leather jackets and sheer, destroyed jersey. DRKSHDW is the counterpoint to the mainline collection. Offering more textural distressed and treated fabric compositions than in the more sophisticated mainline proposal. DRKSHDW fuses classical influences with brutalism as well as tribal design. This can be seen in Owens’ classic pod shorts, Ramones sneakers and elongated bomber jackets. DRKSHDW continues to present a modern take on streetwear through offering asymmetrical, elongated and distressed iterations of everyday staples.
