i want: Rick Owens Hun Jacket

Rick Owens Hun Jacket

It’s fucking freezing in Toronto right now and it has me thinking about fur. Rick Owens fur. Of course, I like to look at what the designers are creating and the jackets often cost more than a car or a down payment on a house. Some are amazing feats of cut and colour and others are pretty garish. Ideally, a vintage fur jacket is on my list of must haves. It’s cheaper and I like the look of vintage fur. Whenever I’m vintage shopping I check out the fur racks, in case I find that magical piece.

The Rick Owens Hun Jacket is made of Fisher fur jacket and has leather sleeves. It wouldn’t be great for -30 at all considering it’s from the Spring Summer 2014 collection but man it’s a very stylish and modern looking fur coat. Fur done cool, the only way possible in the land of Rick Owens. This puppy cost $31,752 and is available on RickOwens.eu.

There is always a place for Rick on I want РI got. The Rick Owens Fall Winter 2010 Р2011 collection added some new elements: zigzag prints and geometric horn appliqu̩s. The collection is very warrior like an urban warrior.

The only things I’m not all that jazzed about in the collection are the down wrap jackets.

Subway Jumping

I was coming home on the subway after Canada beat the US for gold and I ran into a friend Arieh Singer. He had obviously been partying during the day and was taking drunken photographs of his wife and her sister on the subway. He asked me if I wanted to take part and of course I said yes. Here is the result of that fooling around.

I’m in love with this picture, but I happen to love photos where I’m jumping for some reason.

Rick Owens - Nick Knight, Arena Homme Plus

My obsession with Rick Owens, the man and the clothes, has driven me to make this post. There have been many Rick Owens interviews and videos on the internet in the last month.

SHOWstudio created a Rick Owens Portrait. It’s a combination of video and images. It is lovely. Be sure to click the link to see the videos

Providing an intimate portrait of Rick Owens in his own words and his own clothing, this filmic diptych, shot live during the action on set, explores Nick Knight’s monograph of an American fashion legend

Rick Owens - Nick Knight, Arena Homme Plus

The images, also part of the portrait, are from Nick Knight’s editorial for Arena Homme Plus. The Showstudio site has more images, I’ve selected my favourites to post here. The top one is now tiled on my desktop. 🙂

There are some interviews online. Vice Magazine interviewed Rick for their fashion issue. Hint Fashion Magazine Blog had a video interview with Rick. And the Rules of Style: Rick Owens from Mens.style.com.

Rick Owens Ready to Wear - Fall 2009 - 2010

Fall 2009 – 2010 has been pretty boring to me. I haven’t posted as much as I have in previous seasons because nothing has really grabbed me. Paris has had better shows than Milan and NYC. One of those shows is Rick Owens. He eschewed traditional black and send greys of all shades down the runway. It was a fabulous collection as always. I shall be salivating over his jackets once again this fall.

i want Rick Owens Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket

Rick Owens – Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket

Rick Owens Washed and Gathered Leather Jacket Spring 2009

How freaking hot is this leather jacket by Rick Owens. It’s has more volume compared to most of his sleeker leathers. He keeps the signature slim sleeves with high armholes that makes a Rick Owens jacket a dream to wear. It’s cropped and it reminds me of a bomber jacket put through the Rick Owenantor.

I love this collection. Thank god for Paris, I get giddy. The only thing I don’t like too much is the zippered pants. I can’t believe Rick has changed my opinion on the aesthetics of fur; it’s possible for it to look good and not tacky. (sorry peta freaks, I’m not sorry I said the fur looks good. And yes I know what happens to them, thanks)

i got: Rick Owens Funnel Neck Jacket

Rick Owens Funnel Neck Jacket
Now or Never has been very good to me this season (It’s over for this season people). I managed to get this Rick Owens Funnel Neck Jacket for 75% off. It was the last one on the rack and it fit perfectly. I was in love. Initially, I walked away from the jacket and left the store, but I kept talking about it which was driving MJ nuts. I couldn’t get it out of my mind. A la Trent Reznor, it kept calling me, kept on calling me!

So, I went back and the rest is history. Afterwards, MJ informed me that this jacket sold out completely, everywhere.

Rick Owens Funnel Neck Jacket
This jacket fits amazing. The arms are a very slim cut but they are lined in silk so that it’s easy to put it on. The underside of the arms is made from a knit material which also adds to the sleekness of the arm. The double collar is drool worthy and I love how high it stands up. It’s like urban armour and I can block out humanity properly.

Rick Owens Funnel Neck Jacket

It’s funny because I almost bought this Rick Owens piece a TNT that day, but decided against it. However, fate would bring me back to Rick proper.
