Rick Owens has always been attracted to a "glamorous, decadent" aesthetic, he says, but now it has "a layer of affection. All those years of doomed idealism seen in the daylight of adulthood seemed rather sweet and poignant. Everything black I ever wore again or put on a runway would be with a loving wink."
