RICK OWENS BY RICK CASTRO

Rick Owens chose the influential S&M photographer and long-time friend Rick Castro to immortalize a cast of elder gentlemen between 60 and 93 years – including the artist’s father and other men the photographer does stuff with in Hollywood – for the designer’s Fall/Winter 2014-15 lookbook. A composition of black and white full-shots and timeless portraits of these moody and almost uncovered characters, literally giving life to Rick Owens’s fetishistic clothing vision in a certain kind of sculptural classicism. The high presence of leather, an element Rick Owens is so familiar with, is almost fundamental to give the sense of severe sexuality and arty perversion both Owens and Castro aim to with their works – recalling Rick Castro’s worlds: ‘fetish is the exploration of sex as art, and the refinement of one’s personal desires.’ The peculiar choice they made for the casting stress even more the idea of breaking boundaries and creating something provocative, unexpected and beyond; the next thing that sets against the by-now obsession of youth and beauty.
