Southern Californian Rick Owens began designing after a two-year period studying pattern cutting in Los Angeles, where he founded his eponymous label in 1994. For several years, he remained largely hidden from mainstream view, with a small but dedicated following within the underground scene.
In the years that have followed, the fashion community has recognised Rick Owens’ singular ability to combine a gothic sensibility with the craftsmanship of couture and casual attitude of streetwear. Since relocating his label from America to Europe, Rick Owens has established a cult following drawn to his brutalist designs, asymmetry and profane attitude to modern pop culture and contemporary ritual.
Throughout his decades in the industry, Rick Owens has established a dedicated following of fashion-forward supporters loyal to the brand’s disruptive philosophy, reflected in Owens’ own exploration of contemporary Western tribalism.
Taking inspiration as confidently from classical Italian architecture as Californian skate parks and Estonian rappers, Rick Owens pieces are defined by idiosyncratic, linear shapes and lightweight luxurious fabrics such as silk, viscose and lamb leather.
HEVN has deliberately curated a strong collection of core Rick Owens garments including T-shirts and dresses that can be just as easily incorporated into casual daywear as they can as sophisticated eveningwear.
By wearing Rick Owens, you embody an appreciation for a quality label still true to its alternative roots, as well as a commitment to independence and rebellion. HEVN shares this creative vision and welcomes you to join us in it.
