Draped in shadows

Launched in 2008, DRKSHDW is Rick Owens’ clothing line, based on the American designer’s unique and sculptural silhouettes. The urban style comes complete with references to the 80s and 90s glam rock, gothic and punk scenes which Owens knows so well. Firstly intended as a denim line, DRKSHDW now also offers sweaters, t-shirts, draped tunics and shoes, all ranging in dark tones that bestow a vintage feel to some of the pieces.

The Spring/Summer 2017 collection stands close to the line’s urban and minimal DNA, featuring dark dropped-crotch pants and graphic tees. A touch of lightness in the shadows also makes its debut, with ivory and sea-green ensembles.
