THE RICK OWENS EXHIBITION
A LEGACY OF HIS OWN
Celebrating his longstanding hallmark aesthetic, American designer Rick Owens inaugurated an impressive retrospective in Milan called “Rick Owens. Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman” that runs through Mar. 25, 2018. Designed and curated by the designer himself with a runway feel, starting from the dramatic lighting, it spotlights Owens’ 20-year career that spans from fashion to art and design. Framed by a pristine white setting, the clothes are displayed on mannequins positioned on raised black platforms while a huge dark suspended serpentine-like sculpture follows visitors throughout the entire experience. Owens’s ability to blend virtuosity and artistry shines through on his draped, nipped and finely-cut dresses and sharp tailoring.
