DRKSHDW By: Rick Owens (b. 1962)
FW15 Exploder Parka
Rick Owens, a designer that became immediately recognizable with a glance at his work. Owens’ avant-garde designs have evolved over the years of clothing, futurniture, and architecture that is paradoxical in nature.
The exploder motif has remained a staple in Rick Owens’ outerwear, and can be seen in multiple seasons and in numerous iterations, such as leather, moleskin, nylon, and waxed denim. This version features a nylon outer and zippered hood that allows for a split hoodie effect that can provide variation in fitment for the wearer.
