Interview Magazine for their July/June 2011 issue put Rick Owens head to head with Kris Van Assche for a sit down interview. Mr. Owens probed Assche regarding his return to Dior. In his words:
“All my friends were just telling me don’t do it because it’s gonna be so tough. Usually when people take over an old house, or a line, it’s because it’s almost dead. But that was not the case at Dior. I was taking over a success story, which is really tough to do, because nobody wants you to do the same thing and nobody wants you to change. But it’s still one of those propositions you can’t really refuse, because it was the possibility to do everything that was impossible at my old label.”
