FRANCE / Paris: Fashion & Beauty by Rick Owens

October 12 2011

American designer Rick Owens publishes a luxurious large-format book about his work and sensibility.

Fashion & Beauty is the new book, which documents the work of the American designer Rick Owens, a transformational figure in contemporary fashion, propelling him to the front ranks of the international avant-garde. Established in 1994, Owen's designs have now become very important in the Paris collections. Distinguished by an aesthetic that the designer has himself described as “grunge meets glamour,” this gritty elegance-tempered by a remarkable restraint-has won him an international following, with admirers ranging from Kate Moss to Courtney Love to Terence Koh.

Designed by Owens himself, this volume is full of monumental images detailing all aspects of the designer's work. The visual narrative of this book provides an instructive look at the process of design from an artist who is at once comfortable with innovation and respectful of traditional approaches.
