Quote of Note | Rick Owens

“People ask why I do monochromatic clothes; the reason is because I’m thinking in proportion to the world. In this room, your head is going to look so much more interesting if it’s on a monochromatic column. Whereas I think people think of outfits and gets a little too fussy, a little too detailed. I’m always thinking of the line of a person standing with their head in a room and I always feel like a stalk, or a stem, or a pillar is nicer. I always think of everything architecturally. The furniture ended up being a natural extension of the clothes. Architecture is what energizes me most for clothes anyway. Looking through architecture books is probably by biggest stimulation.”

Rick Owens, in an interview with Terry Jones in the “lights, camera, action” issue of i-D
