• Designer Focus - Rick Owens

    0 comments / Posted by 73

    If one designer has taken the goth/grunge movement and catapulted it into the mainstream consciousness, it's Rick Owens. A relatively young label, Rick Owens is known for his signature leather jackets - entire collections are built around the wardrobe staple. [ux_image id="45484" image_size="medium" drop_shadow="1"] The designer, famed for his gothic approach, started his eponymous label in 1994 and sold exclusively to LA retailer Charles Gallay until Kate Moss featured in one of his designs in American Vogue. And there's no one like Mossy to amp up the desirability of a designer. Since then, Rick Owens has established the kind of reputation most designers only dream about: His runway presentations transcend mere fashion and enter into the realm of art, dance and theatrics. At Siopaella, we have been busy sourcing Rick Owens cult classics and have managed to get our hands on some of the hottest pieces around (below). Since 2005, Rick Owens has become a serious label for collectors as his exclusive designs and collaborations are rare and hard to source.  Well, we pulled some strings and nabbed some of the most covetable pieces from the inimitable American designer. From the classic leather biker jackets in black and sage green to the funereal style long charcoal coat, if you're a Rick Owens fan, better get your skates on and head on down because these pieces won't last long! Alternatively, check us out on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat or call us on 01 677 9106 oe 01 555 0119. His pieces are located throughout our three stores in Dublin's Temple Bar. We love to chat all things fashion.[ux_custom_products products="12" columns="4" cat="rick-owens" type="masonry"]

Prada screams class and sophistication and we wouldn't be surprised if you got invited to a rooftop soiree or two off the back of this little minx!
