Fall's Best Fashion Books
Stylish reads that run the aesthetic gamut
Written by Edward Espitia
In this follow-up to 2019’s Rick Owens, Owens takes us back into his world through the exacting lens of Danielle Levitt, his long-time collaborator. More Rick Owens (Rizzoli) captures a transformational moment in Owens’ oeuvre during the pandemic, when he staged audience-less shows at the Lido di Venezia with a small skeleton team—Owens himself was on hair and makeup and trash can lids replaced wind machines. Levitt guides us through the designer’s experimentation with exotic materials and extraordinary use of vibrant colors. This book is a brazen, unapologetic homage to Owens’ “grunge-meets-glamour” approach to creation though unprecedented times.
