Let's get a rick thread going.
None of that goofy shit though, post some wearable fits.
+1 GBP for fits with some color, pic related.
He definitely has a certain aesthetic that many people cling to, however you can easily make some decent fits without the overexaggerated silhouettes that you usually see Rick wearing.
No I just don't like seeing Rick degraded to fucking trash levels by hypebeasts.
post some of your rick inspo then.
>wahhh I'm going to complain but do nothing to change anything
>wearing the pieces wrong
That's the most closeminded and ignorant statement I've ever heard, especially on a fashion forum. You can't wear something you like wrong. Sure, you may not like the way some people style their clothing, doesn't mean they're doing it wrong.
Finally someone that agrees and don't call me a fuccboi over it. If there is something fashion misses nowadays is a meaning behind it and Rick Owens is honestly one of the best to do it. I agree some of the things he does now and then are outrageous but once you understand what he's trying to accomplish it's pretty easy to admire it. Obviously not everyone gets it, though.
Sorry, it was actually a very harsh statement indeed.
What I'm trying to say is when people don't incorporate Rick Owens pieces into fits that don't fit the aesthetic I always assume they didn't grasp the idea behind. Regardless, looks good.
Yea he had said that he studies himeslf and learns from himself. I think that's pretty cool , a lot of people hate on his shoes and his clothes but i think theyre wonderful. I really want a pair of his shorts or pants but i cant spend that kind of money right now.
I'm not saying he's a hack but, for example, these doesn't strike me as original
got these pants recently.
first off, they took 4 weeks to actually get to me because of production and then a "delay" for two weeks.
second, when i finally got them they were tagged size XS but fit like a 32 waist, and hips are extremely large. massive pants for me.
third, the quality was very poor for the price, loose stitches, and excess fabric everywhere in the inside.
overall i've gotten a lot of comments/compliments on them but wouldn't again buy anything from bravado
Pull off what? Rick? User posted here for a while, so did poet, mamma, twerk, timber, straw, tinny, /fa/cist, theo, teddy, some of qko and birthdays fits, there have been some anons that one guy from SF with the futuristic style. So to answer your question, yes, quite a few.
forgot we were aiming for at least some colour
i was looking for the model of it? doesn't look like a typical jason/gimp or anything i've seen, i'd assume drkshdw to narrow the search a bit more but anyone got anything more specific?
ok thats all the inspo i have someone else contribute now rick threads are best threads
I didn't know lacing could have such an impact but you're definitely correct. What lacing style would you recommend for Ramones?
What's the best way to lace Geos? I laced mine like I would any other high top shoe, which leaves enough length for me to wrap the laced around once, but leaves barely enough length to be able to tie the knot. How do I lace them so that I still have plenty of length left after wrapping them around once?
Pic related, should I just tie them tighter?
I prefer to disregard the tie behind method and lace it to be able to not disturb the intended sillohette ( the giant tongue being the main part) here is a picture of how I've laced mine, very rarely I wear them with no laces which is always fun
So you basically just crisscrossed them like I did, just a bit looser. Alright, that's what I figured I'd have to do. Thanks man.
And yeah, I can't wait to go full goof and wear them without laces
you all take rick way too seriously. Just wear the garments how you'd like to and have fun with it. Thats really what ricks garments are about. A playful, architectural take on creating beautiful garments and the really cool community of people who appreciates the garments and the different kinds of ways to wear them
Raf white velcros. Very difficult to find. I'm lucky enough to have found a pair in my size recently for cheap :^)
just to clarify the rick owens ethos or watev. He doesn't care what you do as long as you're not a pretentious, elitist fashion nerd. He is a loving being. He'd probably enjoy it if u went to an orgy in his clothes.
holy shit those pants actually made me gag. Get the real drkshdw cargos. Damn.
old drkshdw hoodie from like 2009 ish. I don't think it had a name? Not the gimp or the jason.
What he said was logically valid.
Bumping thread for love of Rick.
I'll post some links to great Owens ethos stuff in a few hours.
there's not a complex rick ethos he's just a nice guy.
this is usually my go-to for sneakers but i especially like how it looks on ramones
Sizing on geos? Usually around a 10
You sound way too new. Don't post just lurk. To answer your question Rick dies do a ton of minimal stuff but yes he does have some more involved designs. You might also be involved in Helmut Lang. Or if you want an entirely different more distressed look go with brands like (Carpe, LUC, IS, L&F) basically anything of or relating to Carpe Diem is fairly minimal but has some amazing cuts to not fall into mediocrity.
That's a tough question to answer because different designers do minimal in different ways. You could argue that Italo Zuchinelli does minimal really well, but his silhouettes are usually very athletic, very muscular and he's been playing with texture quite a bit lately.
You could say that Rad Hourani is minimal, but his focus is purely on unisex styling and he has always had a penchant for lots of boxy, layered silhouettes with abstracted takes on traditional garments.
Phoebe Philo had a reputation as a minimalist, too, but she's obviously been incorporating a lot more detail and textile work into recent collections. But there are still really masterfully cut, clean lines in a lot of the pieces when taken apart from the full collections.
You can even argue that designers like Halston were minimalists. With no facings, supple fabrics, and unrestrictive constructions, his jersey and ultra suede dresses and jumpsuits represented a distinctly "unfashioned" fashion in stark contrast to many of the conventions of dressmaking that dominated the era before him.
I think the problem >>9808676 takes with >>9808624 is that the recommendations seem very scattershot.
Rick does minimal, yes. Lots of straight, severe lines right alongside very soft, draped ones.
Modern Helmut menswear (as done by Plokhov) is very anti-minimal. It's severe but loaded with lots of textures and seams and darts and pockets and fabric combinations and plays on opacity, weight, finish. Cut and sew jersey is probably the most minimal stuff and a some of it is starting to be made in the US. Not great, but good if you aren't a big sipper on the Kool-Aid and just want something natural and comfortable, with one or two interesting details. Lang-era had many more minimal moments; anything bandage-y, jersey with cut-outs, the very sharp (almost boxy) tailoring.
Carpe's treatment of fabric was intense and thorough, but the approach was always minimal in a way.
LUC is less about minimalism and more about technique, but the best results tend to be minimal.
I've never had a strong read on what in the IS lineup I like or would wear. Never really felt much appeal beyond the frequently anatomic edge, which is appealing, but never did it for me. I know what it's on other people's radar, I guess.
L&F is usually fussy. The restrictive palette dominates a lot of it, but there's usually at least a few ideas going on in one piece. Lots of fumbles, but there are times when the collar and fabric and length and drape are all going at the same time and she finds a nice balance between them.
So, lots of mention, but not all of it related.
>tfw want this but im a guy, its also 4+ figures
Might not be what he meant but I think of minimal as being the greatest possible correlation between high fashion and normie. Being so reserved that most people find it interesting if not inoffensive, while getting props from those in the know.
In the other arts it seems to come across that way. FF should weigh in again if he has anything to add on that, amazing posts as usual.
Tight top and loose/drapey bottom? Doesn't look like it would work. Maybe if you wear jeans and tightly lace your geos it would look nice.
But what do I know? I'm a fuccboi.
Don't be discouraged, it could still work. Imagine pic related wearing a biker leather jacket.
