Rick Owens iconic outerwear
Rick Owens’ avant-garde aesthetic may take on a new form each season, but there are timeless pieces—instantly recognisable as coming from Rick—that have underpinned his success. Here’s a look at some certified Rick outerwear classics available for AW16:
The Fishtail Parka
Kanye West’s love for the Rick Owens Fishtail Parka was so great that the Chicago-born multi-hyphenate presented his own take on the style as part of his second capsule collection with A.P.C. The style differs from traditional parkas, both in proportion and in the inclusion of subtle detailing like the drawsting hem.
Padded Flight Parka
A slight variation on the above (and another favourite of Mr West’s), the Padded Flight Parka features contrast drawstrings and a high-fastening neck. It also comes with seasonally appropriate inner padding, perfect for those of us who spend more time in Glasgow than Calabasas.
The Rick Owens Flight Jacket is his most iconic creation-- slightly ironic seeing as it’s also one of his most understated pieces. Signature Owens’ style dictates that it should be worn oversized, as he perfectly illustrates here.
The Flight Trench is essentially the Flight Jacket, but extended to the point that it finishes just above the knee. It is a style that had been copied by many, but this is the true original. This elongated bomber is a subtle twist on a classic style which, in true Rick Owens fashion, transforms it into something completely unique.
