A Sneak Peek into the Rick Owens Brand

This eponymous fashion label was founded in 1994 by American fashion designer Richard Saturnino Owens. The Los Angeles-based brand has become one of the most sought-after houses for unconventional designs. The company offers collections in menswear, womenswear, leather goods, accessories, and its signature boots.

Rick Owens has always stood out for its unique creations. The company has consistently created designs different from those of other luxury fashion brands. They are known for their avant-garde, dark, and edgy style that appeals to cool fashionistas.

People often use names like proto-punk to describe Rick Owen’s distinct style. Another reason people celebrate the brand is that, like other quiet luxury brands, it doesn’t need logos or monograms to sell its products. To cap it all, different brands even copy a thing or two from them. The New York Times shares these sentiments by referring to Rick Owens as “fashion’s most imitated designer.”

Their iconic boots have particularly been influential in shaping style trends today, as rocking them unlocks new levels of unconventional fashion. 

Are Rick Owens Boots Expensive?

Yes, they are, and for a good reason. The brand prides itself on using high-quality materials to create its pieces. Besides, good leather doesn’t come cheap, and Rick Owens uses quality leather. This contributes to the high cost of their products, which are often worth the price. But as the saying goes, if it’s worth it, put your money on it.

Go Monochromatic

Rick Owens is all about the sleek, tonal dressing. Pair the boots with monochrome shades like black, grey, olive, or oxblood. The solid colors allow the shape of the shoes to pop.

Mix Textures

While keeping your color tone understated, give people more deets to stare at by mixing different fabrics and textures to create more visual interest. You can do a mixture of leather, knits, silk, or faux fur in one look for that perfect contrast.

Distress it

Pair the boots with shredded knitwear, washed leather, or denim with fraying and tears for a grungier, worn-out feel.

Think Coats

Don’t know what to wear? Throw on coats. Layering with coats takes your outfit up a notch and adds more visual interest to your look.

Accessorize Minimally

Let Your Boots Be the Hero
