i'm probably not even going to go tbh
i want to see more furniture irl and meet him, but that's not really worth the frankly grotesque atmosphere there is at rick happenings. it's unfortunate, but i just feel really uncomfortable and intimidated around the majority of his customers... being stared out by grown men and women is weird and unnerving (i'm not going to bother talking about the hordes of teenagers either)
whenever i want to enjoy a rick experience i'll walk to his store fifteen minutes down the street
Just saw about this on the Raster-Noton fb page, they're dropping 8GB SD cards w/ sweet goodies exclusively for the takeover.
They're £235 each as well lmao
>dem Emptyset / Ryoji Ikeda / Alva Noto / Byetone.
tinny you silly cunt he did a pale pink flight bomber/trench for Faun you really think he's rusing w/ colour comments?
Also where have you been? /fa/ has been shit without weekly or fortnightly /rick/ threads.
yes nerd that's why he's rusing
'oh yeah there's a yellow tag in the clothes maybe this means ill start using some colours'
*produces men's faun months before saying this*
you are really buying into those dreadful articles that call groups of rick fans a 'dark parade' and a 'monastic monochrome cult', that suggests everyone that buys him is a big swag team but it's not really like that
you're quite randomly aggressive in your post despite being less informed than i am, but i'll give you the benefit of the doubt by explaining this to you
>true rick buyers are an older unusual and sophisticated breed of person
there is no 'true buyer' of anything. this is an embarrassing statement. this suggests rick values one person's money more than another's, and he does not. there is no hidden core of ~~authentic~~ elderly gothninja ppl that get discounts and brush his hair. this just does not happen. rihanna owns more rick pieces than anybody discussing him on the internet. is she a true rick buyer?
in my post, i complain about the atmosphere at shows- it's ugly, and 90% of the people there are not the 65yo+ wizards you've created for your tinfoil sucks narrative. they may be rick's PRIMARY (not "true", you literal shithead) consumer, but they are the least visible at shows. the MAJORITY there are 20-30somethings, and the atmosphere is u g l y. if you go one day, you'll probably understand (or go to any runway show tbh). everyone is furiously staring at each others clothes, furiously smoking, furiously looking around to see if they are being photographed, furiously waving their invitations at the security or furiously arguing that they are on the list. it's unpleasant, and you can understand the effect on me, probably. when i was at moody i was seventeen, and i was freaked out by everything! and i subject myself to it because i love rick and want to watch his shows up close and not through my computer.
lol this post was legit autistic dude settle down. You're normally was calmer with your posts.
I understand what you mean about the revolting competitive atmosphere though. It's like a manifestation of basic struggles for dominance and shit.
Missed your rick generals too.
i'd like to stress that i have, of course, met lovely people at shows. these were fans that were not brawling on the steps to be photographed by adam katz sinding. when i was at moody, i met a really nice older married couple from england, (and they get as close to the rich-old-people-tons-of-rick stereotype as you can get) from like harpenden or somewhere else miles away from anything, and they were telling me how when the wife learned about rick through the store opening they got a train to london the same day to check it out because they both got really excited about it. that was very nice.
rick staff, stores and shows = really nice.
many rick customers = really nice.
competitive stylezeitgeist rick fans = slightly less nice.
fuck you sound retarded. perhaps it's you who furiously is seeking attention. been to dior homme shows in paris among others and it's never been what you describe. i guess your fashion_scene_knowledge comes directly from sites like this
and yes there are "true buyers" of any product. it really has to do with positioning within a market — it's what any brand does. but really you cant break the "true buyer" down only to demographics like age or gender.
no lol. you know nothing of the work of the raster notion, mille plateux, pan or mego (currently editions mego) label. i think you should just give up because rick will never like you
if ur gunna chide me for not knowing about german techno whatever its fine, but don't spell the name wrong lmao
is this open yet? may pop by later.
>if i don't like it, i'll grab one of those soft cotton shirts
>jerk off into it
>become the inspo for rick's next collection faun ii
>become friends with rick's crew.
>destroy company from the inside by mobilizing production to china
>rick's products become awful
>cop hot muse
>watch rick's life crumble as i rip his gym membership to shreds
martin keeps up the HARDCORE KOs
are timber and poet even able to muster the strength after being rekt in the outback this many times???
am i next?????
tfw not a redpilled raf god
look, rick is doing skateboards!
now who's gonna look like a retard for skating geobaskets? not me
judge for yourself, i don't particularly want yellow tags all over everything
cutlery is good though
i wish my job was writing product descriptions
"High on the agenda at Paris Fashion Week, this doorag head scarf from iconic designer Rick Owens is a must-have accessory this season. Worn by the likes of legendary rap artists 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg, this style is a real statement, perfect for the fashion conscious out there."
"Rick Owens' sub-culture style is referenced in the sublime details of this merino wool cardigan. The elongated silhouette, sheer panelling and unique middle-seam at the back provide the label's directional D.N.A."
"Add a sporty edge to your streetwear with Rick Owen's Geobasket hi-top sneakers. Crafted from fine Italian leather with a unique oversized padded tongue and chunky contrasting sole, with an exposed zip for extra style points, these sneakers will take you from the basketball court to the catwalk in no time."
remember this is officially the world's best department store
I think selfridges knows pretty well who they want to appeal to with their descriptions
Designed exclusively for Selfridges, this Masters knife by Rick Owens makes the ultimate style statement in the home. Exquisitely crafted in contrasting silver and bronze to enhance your culinary experience, this will give any table setting a designer-luxe uplift.
ultimate style statement at home
mfw thought you were kidding about the descriptions
mfw those are the actual descriptions
as much as you try to play it off as >le internet fight it's pretty obvious that twerk and timber cuntery is really rubbing off on you, thought i was reading a timber post back there
lay off the internet fashion superiority complex you fucking nerds
Misunderstanding on my part then tintin, I thought you meant he was rusing as in he was not going to actually commit to bringing more colour into his clothing, but you're right. Every Rick interview I've read lately asks shit like, 'so why black?' as if they've only seen his work by looking through instagram hashtags instead of the shows.
This seems to be true.
the thing i hate about a lot of young people (and myself) is the way we try to define ourselves and make ourselves interesting by trying to like cooler music and like better memes than those around us.
That article about hipsters is as relevant as ever.
We should do a London meetup at the Rick Store
imagine 12 dangerously underweight sweaty faggots packed in that store whispering "r-raf simons rick owens" and giggling to themselves dropping spag bol everywhere
i was in a store couple weeks ago and the saleswoman told me ramones arent going to be called ramones anymore because 'the ramones' sued
havent seen this confirmed anywhere but on the rickwebsite theyre only called sneakers now
i'm disappointing about the exclusive pieces. it's just ordinary pieces with a special tag inside and a yellow patch. but to be fair i'd actually dislike if selfridges had real good exclusive pieces that i'd only be able to get from them.
the canvas bags are not super overpriced. i guess that's notable.
i wonder if they're going to get more stuff? the selection atm is somewhat small for retailer of their size, even if you disregard the whole collaboration thing.
also rick. plz change back to the old zip pullers.
A lot of the exclusives weren't made for them, but are just pieces that they'll retail exclusively in the UK. There's only a small patch of the yellow-tagged stuff that was made expressly for this showcase.
>This small-town, Wagner-loving, Hollywood Boulevard party boy has since established a niche as fashion's dissenter-in-chief that's so lucrative he recently withdrew from the purchase of an entire island in Venice only because the Italian bureaucracy was so impenetrable.
reminder that some people on /fa/ actually claim to not love rick and say he isn't their favourite designer
