Begun as a denim collection, the streetwear line that is DRKSHDW makes Rick Owens accessible beyond the Paris runways. Pared to its essence, the line reflects Owens’ Goth influences, but simplified for the street. Tailoring is bold and crisp, and always carries an edge.
In some sense, the line reflects a punk iconography with graphic accents and a skater ethos. Muted colors and bold shapes rule.
Inspiration for the line? Rick always thinks of the Ramones and 'What would Joey wear’? He believes that our generation has a little bit of the Ramones in them - cheery, big and loud, and very American in its simplicity.
