RICK OWENS’ S STANDARDS OF BEAUTY
The retrospective charts the last 20 years of Rick Owens, designer or clothing and furniture. The most touching aspect of the exhibition is the personal ephemera from the designer’s life, intertwined with his wife and muse, Michele Lamy, who met Owens in the ’90s when she was the owner of Hollywood hangout Les Deux.
Born in California he currently lives in Paris. He launched his eponymous line in 1994 out of a raw storefront on Hollywood Boulevard. He therefore caught the attention of the fashion world for his “glunge” style. He was known as the preferred designer of the the glamorous and goth, with devotees such as Michelle Obama and Justin Bieber.
