why do people actually think rick owens is a good designer again?
look at this shit
what asshole would want to wear this out in public?
cheap see-through material for $400
you can get the exact same thing from a chinese sweatshop for 35 cents
>yeah why is that a bad thing
because that's neither fashionable nor practical, you just look like a fucking idiot.
it doesn't matter what your body type looks like, you'll still look like an asshole
i think rick is mostly a good designer but the stuff that generally gets hyped, especially on /fa/, is bad.
like do people actually think geobaskets look good? or do they just buy them to prove they're in the rick owens meme shoe club?
$800 to look like an asshole from an abandoned alien planet off of Star Trek
do you want to combine the best of your fedorawear and your BDSM fetish? $4400 and it's yours
Its worn like that because its a stock pic so you can see the thing that you're buying you retard.
Have you ever seen an irl rick fit with a single tshirt?
And anyone who has handled these tees can feel the quality
Well, may I please know your favorite designers? :^)
I'm not talking about durability but about the luxury of the material.
Just go to your nearest Rick store and compare it to your $5 tee.
I'm not defending rick as a brand and these shirts are really fragile but that's the sacrifice in order to make it fit like it does
want to look like a pregnant housewife that's apart of the galactic senate from star wars? $3000 and you can!
did you ever say to yourself "wow I really like the look of those black trash bags I wish I could wear one"
now you can, $2300
i can't even begin to describe this one, i'll just call it what the fuck core
what galactic senate is complete without palpatine himself? $489 and you too can be a sith lord
Who the fuck said anything about loyalty? Just because you have a favorite author doesn't mean that's all you read, right? OP made a thread questioning why Rick Owens is considered a good designer, so I asked him for his favorites, who are probably the designers that he considers good.
planning on assaulting a PoW camp in some middle east dump? $1900 and you can liberate those sons of bitches
are you just dying to show off your white 70s gogo-boots with your hairy ass legs?
complete that outfit with this $360 sash/diaper
remember when your parent(s) took you to the museum as a kid? didnt you just wish you could take all those paintings home and fucking WEAR THEM?
$2700 and now you can
> buying a shirt just to cover it up with a jacket
> buying socks just to cover them up with shoes
are you a moron?
if we go by your logic everyone should wear one layer of clothing at all times. would you go to work without either the jacket or shirt? no, it is essential to have both in order to get the 'look' of formal officewear. same stands for high end stuff. you cant just wear a rick shirt on its own with cheap blue straight jeans, brown leather shoes and no jacket. you put items of clothing together to complement the piece.
i know your trolling i just dont care
I think the point is that people who rail against Rick don't have any comeback as to what clothes are better. That's because most likely not everyone is going to like it and that would point out how subjective a taste in fashion is, so the argument is stupid in the first place.
OP most likely trollin, tho. It's neither fashionable nor practical? lel
>like do people actually think geobaskets look good? or do they just buy them to prove they're in the rick owens meme shoe club?
what do you think?
I'd take chucks over geos if not for the value. They're massively fucking clunky clown shoes.
what if your chest were your legs?
and what if those legs were wearing some shitty denim?
now they can be, $965
why stop at the chest
let's cover our entire bodies in this material
was wearing the trash bag on your torso just too meta for you?
restrict your movement completely with Hefty's new $2700 trashbag
actually the $2700 is for the coat which surprisingly isn't that bad looking at all. I'm sure you could find a similar looking coat for a lot cheaper though.
give all the boys what they want to see when you pick up your toddler at daycare with this completely see-through dress. $395 and you may as well be wearing nothing at all
accent your vagina with this $260 one-piece swimsuit
this one actually isnt even that bad but i just found it humorous how fucking awful this picture is
ever wish your white undershirts went down to your ankles? don't bother trying to stretch that shit out, $70 and you too can wear something that looks like it was meant for somebody 4x your size
Without quoting all of your 100 ebin funny posts
If you think people wear any of the stuff you posted you are more of a retard then I thought.
You can point out tons of pieces from every single designer that nobody actually wears. Link me a few examples of a real life fit using these ridicoulus pieces - you can't.
Give you a 3/10 for effort posting the same thing for hours now :~)
Instantly thought of this.
kick logic to the curb when you order these $900 pair of ice-skates cleverly disguised as shoes
scare girls, guys, and any other creature with a brain away with this $2200 skirt with a spooky face on it
it's getting hot at the office, but you still need to look your best and wear a pair of slacks
get the worst of both worlds with these slack shorts. $964
>actually the $2700 is for the coat which surprisingly isn't that bad looking at all. I'm sure you could find a similar looking coat for a lot cheaper though.
Wow, what a zinger that one was
The women's leggings were great, too.
I see it, but there might be more parallels between protective padding as well as the windows on the Nagakin Capsule Tower.
I loved the Brancusi shoes he did a few years back.
What a disgusting thread. I really hope it's just twerk or tl trying to be meta as fuck.
>mfw this thread is not only still alive but has 100+ replies
This is 2010, not 06-09.
Yeah, a lot of people forget that there's TONS of stuff in the showroom and lots of smaller stores choose to only grab a seasonal style or two while sticking to things that are tried and true. That said, a lot of things that are repeated are usually repeated with some minor variation (Biker Level Knits and a lot of fabrics for dresses come to mind immediately), so it can seem like there's a lot of new stuff.
That said, the draped kangaroo pocket turtlenecks from Gleam remains something I constantly hunt for, but I've made my peace with not finding them.
I did, actually, but that's because I wear a lot of tunics and a lot of coats, so there was lots for me to choose from. Color palette's right up my alley, too, with all the army and mustard tones working nicely with what I already own. Going to figure out that Adidas pricing before I commit, though.
I understand when people don't like something because it's not their style, but I don't get the "embarrassing" thing that gets thrown around so much. Okay, it's a fine jersey. So I wear it under a jacket. I wear a tank underneath. I don't have any hang ups enough my body that are so bad where I'll have a crippling bout of anxiety over a t-shirt.
>but I don't get the "embarrassing" thing that gets thrown around so much. Okay, it's a fine jersey. So I wear it under a jacket. I wear a tank underneath.
so what you're saying is you cover it up completely this way no one can even see it
I use the garment in whatever way is most comfortable and practical. If it's warm, then it makes sense to wear it on its own. If it's cold, then it'd be silly to force myself to not layer just to showcase what t-shirt I have.
And things don't have to be undergarments in order to be basic building blocks for a look. Nobody would expect you to go without a shirt just so you can focus on the suit you're wearing, would they?
its you to decide what u want to do with the product at the end of the day
wear it like u would a normal tshirt
cut the sleeves to ur liking
this product isn't made for everyones lifestyle,
obviously ur not gonna wear this to ur friends pub crawl event
we're back, and we're fresh
be the pope's arch-nemesis with this gothic black satanist look
find out where the secret rebel base is when you channel the spirit of darth vader in this fresh new outfit
don't bother stretching your sweater until it rips completely, just pay $800 for this stylized wool sweater that looks like your kid just poked a bunch of holes in it with a scissor
become a window with this blackout shutters inspired shirt.
the beach view is fantastic, especially the beach balls
ensure you look your best with this $1075 fitted bedsheet
i really don't get the intentions of designers in general trying to sell these weird ass designs, they are made to be shown off in a fashion show runway, where they are only going to be appreciated by other designers and other people with a 2deep4me taste, do they consider that a person willing to spend 2000 bucks on a black sheet isn't intelligent enough to realize that they are not living in a fashion show? why would they spend that much money in a single item that almost no one is going to appreciate in the same way as the designers and buyers do? are they aware that people on the street are not going to clap at them or congratulate them for buying it?
seriously the people that buy those kind of designer brands have either a shitton of money to spend, or they don't care about spending hundreds or thousands of dollars for an unpractical piece of clothing just to get weird looks from other people wherever they go.
And no i'm not mad
I don't get people who don't do what they want.
Fashion is like anything, you should behave in accordance to your own tastes. I think Rick's clothing is beautiful, and that's why I buy and wear it.
The only intention Rick has is for you to like his things and wear them. If you don't like it, fine.
If you don't understand it, maybe that's on you. I like how you are so quick to shrink an idea like art appreciation into "2deep4u". Why like anything? Are you supposed to just have a passing interest in things? Are we going to ignore that digging deep into any area of fine art is very rewarding, or that it alters your perception? Rick is the kind of designer that takes the history of clothing and fashion into consideration with his designs, as well as a sort of prediction of where it can, or should, go. If you are used to just fast fashion jeans and t-shirts everywhere, I can see how it would be jarring, but to me it looks very natural, it has a timeless quality and a very modern feeling to it.
I'm not going to listen to the radio all the time just so I can know all the music everyone talks about, I'm going to listen to shit I love to listen to even if I can't talk to most people about it. I'm not going to wear shit you think is appropriate because who are you, and why do you think I need to impress you? I don't really want anything to do with someone who has an issue with the way I look.If I'm crossing the street and people are staring, then whatever, I'm probably listening to music or talking to someone.
This never happens though. I've never had any social problems. If anything, it's brought me into contact with people I can relate to.
So there you go. Do what you want, because you're going to die.
I can get behind that.
I think you bring up some fair points, but I also think that the styling of a runway show is interfering with your ability to accurately evaluate what you're talking about. That said, I could be mistaken and maybe you have spent a ton of time trying on a lot of different designers and have still come to this conclusion.
I liked the bubble hems paired with bottoms. Adds to the silhouette in a great way.
It boggles my mind how you can continue to defend each and every one of these monstrously bad pieces of clothing.
You must have Rick's cock lodged so far up your ass you just dont know any better anymore
I guess it can sound like I'm trying to defend everything. I was just saying that I don't actually like the bubble hem styles unless there's a skirt to lengthen and add to the silhouette, in which case I agree with the other anon's assessment that it's a hard-to-wear style. But I like and wear a lot of Rick, so I don't see how it's surprising that I'm comfortable with taking it apart and critiquing the styling.
why do people defend designers so much? people will make a good point against rick for example and all replies will be pretentious "lol ur not rich enough to have it fgt" or something similar.
Because they wasted thousands of dollars on it after people on here told them it was cool
They get pissed that the same site that told them to buy this shit is now making fun of them for owning it
this is an apron from the barber shop with arm holes cut out
I can see what you mean and I'd heartily agree if they were just appliquéd on, which is the usual red flag for "craftsy" decoration, but they aren't and I can at least appreciate the work that went into it.
I think the big thing is that people who are passionate about the brand see a lot in the product and they think that others might not have had the chance to experience what they're experiencing. I do concede that there's a lot of "whatever faggot" replies that get thrown around, but I also think this thread shows a lot of people talking about styling, picking the right fit/fabric, alternatives, etc.
The pattern work as actually pretty cool because that whole drape is set into the right yoke panel and there's nothing actually cut or sewn to give it its shape other than how it was draped and constructed.
>see the jacket
>alright thats not too bad of a leather jacket I guess
>loads the full image
>see the entire outfit
why ruin something that was decent with that stupid fucking oversized shirt that makes you look like you're wearing a literal skirt/kilt
Because that's the effect they're after. The goal is to push the proportion. You already have the elongated sleeve on the jacket, so extending the proportion of the jersey exaggerates things further and does evoke a skirt a bit.
I think it's great if you don't like it, but it'd be even better if you can look outside your own tastes to try and see other perspectives.
See when you say something that's decent, it just seems it's something you recognize. You even use the word "kilt" as a perjorative. I mean, there are people that wear kilts. It's not this forbidden abnornal thing in the world. You're just like "Oh okay a motorcycle jacket- huuuuuuuh??".
You are just making yourself sound stupid while trying to sound right. If you want to talk about your opinion, just do it.
>mfw this thread is still alive
Seriously those who are trying to defend rick should just stop.
This guy says levis and hanes tee looks 500% better so there's nothing much to discuss here.
Everyone has their own taste and style and there will always be people like this that will bash anything that's outside their reach.
Same things can be said for every designer in the world. Hell, even mall tier brands have edgy shit but it's so cool to shitpost about ricky.
>not a single valid argument posted by trolls
Some people are just jelly because other people can afford to waste money on things as unimportant as clothes. They're insecure in what they're wearing so they have to make fun of others to feel better.
Maybe one day you'll also have money to spend on stuff you like :)
the only people that vehemently defend rick re the ones ho have never handled a real article and/or need to save up a few weeks to buy a single DRKSHDW unstable cotton tank
like they can't even afford mainline, they have to save up for diff
then act pious around people in $65 Calvin Klein white label shirts from macy's like they're not wearing shit in the same price range
As with everything the various siegs post, there's a kernel of truth hidden within the trolling. It is silly to act superior because you buy brand A over brand B, but it's also silly to judge something's build or design based solely on whether or not you like it. Sure, design and style might not be purely objective, but things like material and proportion and execution can at least indicate what has or hasn't been thoughtfully put together.
id agree with him except drkshdw isnt diffusion. its made in the same factory as the mainline, its just that the materials and designs aren't as luxurious. lots of cotton jersey and denim street wear
fwiw about half my closet (which isnt much) is rick. i never 'vehemently defend' him or his clothes. i understand and appreciate his detractors. his designs are often emphasize dramatic lines, this can lead to cartoon-like outfits. i dislike a good portion of his designs which i think are too out there, tacky, ugly, or unwearable in a bad way. some pieces i wonder how they ever made it off the production floor. yoox and spence clothing are nice for seeing what kinds of abominations stayed on the shelf past clearance
The jersey/denim thing used to be true, but I actually think of it as just less delicate materials which are great for lazy assholes like me who don't dry clean everything. Polyamide lining vs silk lining, heavy moleskine vs wool, etc. That said, there are actually tons of DRKSHDW and Lilies pieces that are as expensive and sometimes even more expensive than mainline styles and frankly it's not worth comparing the three to each other. You buy each line for specific reasons and each version has its own pros and cons.
daily reminder that if you mary this...
...you might end up with that.
look mate, you are giving critics towards a topic that nobody requested.
You made a thread just to mock other's sense of fashion. This is not a reciprocate conversation neither a thread with an active feedback.
Just a bunch of retards throwing shit at each other because one initial retard started a post about insulting other's interest.
I'm not into avantgarde fashion, neither are you, stupid inbred. So why don't you stop making yourself look like a retard and delete this thread.
This thing looks like it was made by an edgy 14yrs old who just stumble with /fa/ 3 days ago.
So I'm just redirecting yourself to your usual cesspool. >>>/b/
I think it's VERY easy to just wear Rick with more Rick because obviously it's all designed to be worn together and it's less about mix-and-match like other designers. That said, I find that the right pieces work with lots of other stuff. Rick's monochrome or textured knits can be pretty much thrown over anything and the tailored coats can easily be worn over other tailoring and it just is the one unusual contrast to the rest. I've seen Rick mixed with aggressive street stuff like Astrid Andersen and KTZ, with subversive tailored stuff like Komakino and Raf, and naturally it's an easy pairing with equally soft, slouchy stuff like Ann and Yohji.
Rick makes a ton of tailoring ranging from exaggerated tux jackets to shorter (bomber-length) blazers to tailored jackets cut to coat lengths. The pants were typically the more exaggerated component with mostly dropped rises and a variety of lengths, but they've introduced a slimmer, more straightforward pant silhouette since then.
As far as beach and hiking wear goes, I wear, well, things to go swimming and hiking in.
If it's from Sphinx, it'll be in stores by July-ish. If it's Preco, then maybe a few weeks earlier.
The Moody turtlenecks are similar, but with a less pronounced rib at the neck.
also i own quite a few of these and i usually just wear them with nude panties. there's nothing vulgar about it, but you should probably grow the fuck up because 4chan is only for adults
I know exactly what I'd wear if I were a woman.
you made a thread and bumped it for like 3 days just to hate a piece of clothe, how fucking lame is that?
And don't you dare telling me you are not OP, because no fucking body would defend the subject this cringy.
You are literally shit post... no, you are not shitposting,YOU are shitpost itself.
Fucking lame. peace.
they made fun of trent reznor in clueless

Here's a quote I like from Rick Owens regarding his time designing for the classic fur label Revillon:
“It’s about an elegance being tinged with a bit of the barbaric, the sloppiness of something dragging and the luxury of not caring. At Revillon, I felt it wasn’t about displaying one’s wealth, but rather giving the woman a selfish pleasure. It is about using sable as the lining under a very humble jacket, the luxury is all hers.”
Owens' own pieces reflect that, especially the base layers. They're made of very fine knit and soft fabrics that feel amazing. The pleasure of wearing them against your skin is all yours even if you decide to cover with another layer. One of my favorite pieces I own is a pair of Sruli Recht leggings that are made of an incredibly fine knit wool. Nothing else I own feels like them and the texture looks really cool. Like Rick tees they're basically see through, but that really says nothing about the quality of the piece.
rick is made for tall, thin, rich people who look at the same price of a $70 as a $240 shirt. their breakfast costs more than their your three days of meals put together.
money for clothing means little when they're dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars every month. it's something you wont grasp until you are at that point in your life. iktf though, i work at a 7 star. ya feel?
I'm going to have to agree with OP here. You're paying hundreds, even thousands of dollars to look like an idiot. No matter how effay you think you are, you will just look dumb to 90% of the people that see you.
i tell you what i can get you that there garmet for a lesser price.
I don't wear the tricky rick, but eventually I'm going to assemble an entire outfit just to work out in. Geobaskets and all.
