Rick Owens Clothing: Glunge

Rick Owens Clothing“Glunge” is the description Rick Owens gives to his pervading design style – a compound of glamour and grunge. His inspirations span from traditional layers of the past to a science fiction-informed future, and black and white Hollywood.

Autumn/Winter’s “Sphinx” delivers hallmarks of Rick Owens clothing – washed leather biker jackets, floating tunics, and perfectly tapered drop crotch pants. Darkdust and black are staple hues, as always, and passport shows up at Workshop Santa Fe in a big way. Crushed velvet harkens to a forgotten luxury and a pink “cyclamen” blends with Pantone color predictions for SS16.
