Rick Owens' Anthem Men’s Collection Spring/Summer 2016

When Rick Owens designed his Anthem Men’s Collction for spring/summer 2016, he was thinking of austerity and severity.

He envisions uniforms and functional work apparel that mix the shapes of a slave’s skirt from an Egyptian tomb, combined with a vionnet draped t-shirt and a leather jacket made from an old eileen grey chair.

Rick Owens suggests a commitment to an idealistic higher purpose with the veils, but he admits that he himself does not believe in one—at least not now.

Now, Rick is attracted to the ceremony, the pageantry, and the sacrifice that spiritual devotion implies.

Born 1962 in California, Rick Owens studied Fashion at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles.
