Rick Owens, an avant-garde brand with a dark-rock style, was founded in 1994 by Rick Owens, an American fashion designer who became the absolute reference point for the avant-garde and dark-rock style. Owens studied modeling and cutting for two years in Los Angeles until launching the brand under his own name in 1994. He has been able to create a loyal community around his name in the glam and grunge rock and his style has gradually become increasingly recognizable with zips and asymmetrical cuts, extremely slim and long fits, very soft knits and the predominantly black, accompanied by shades of gray. In Rick Owens Kids a tribal and futuristic vision is mixed, in a look that appears timeless, now also for children aged 4 to 12 years. The designer has been called as the lord of darkness for his gothic aesthetic, often using the color black for his designs, using high quality fabrics with a mix of plush textures. The ""Creatch"" cargo trousers were born from the spring/summer 2008 collection and reappear in almost all subsequent menswear collections, also reproposed in the kids version: the design remains the same: straight leg, crotch trousers with elastic waist, circular band velcro and one cargo pocket on each leg.
Rick Owens first unveiled these sneakers in his Autumn/Winter 2006 ""Dustulator"" collection. The rarity of these samples sent existing pairs to astronomical resale prices. The Dunk's definitive form appeared in the SS06 collection with the Dunk Shearling/Nubuck followed by one that was released for the FW06 ""Dustulator”. All these first models feature metal clips, which visibly bind the sole.
Geobasket for children
The iconic sneakers even for the little ones, The Geobasket, is a basketball-style sneaker derived from the Dunk silhouette. It was introduced in 2006 and features a signature corner and side appliqué, as well as a medial zipper for easy entry. According to Luca Ruggeri, commercial director of Rick Owens, the Geobasket was the best-selling product in the menswear line of the brand since its inception now also available in the children's line.
