The Independent | “Rick Owens: The prince of dark design”

The Independent delivers a fairly personal article with designer, Rick Owens. While it goes further into his personal life further in, I’m more taken with the discussion of his life-size wax sculptures. “Rick Owens is face to face with a life-size wax sculpture of himself, staring out of shredded wadding and packed in a wooden crate in a corner of his London store. It’s an oddly unnerving sight, as the cult Californian designer is first to admit: brown-eyed and eerily close in appearance to the man himself, the look of it is made no less disturbing by the fact that it is severed from the waist down – it has no legs… Owens objects for less obvious reasons: ‘It’s not nearly disgusting enough..’
