A LOOK INSIDE PARISIAN HOUSE OF RICK OWENS

Since the label's inception in 1994, Rick Owens's directional and often dark clothing has without doubt left its mark on the industry. In particular, menswear has obviously taken a turn in his direction in recent years, towards a more streamlined and relaxed aesthetic. The designer now reveals a much more personal side by allowing a photographer to come into his home in Paris. It's clear from the pictures that Owens's home is all you'd expect from the designer. Dark, avant-garde furniture occupies the space of the hyperindustry. The open floor is divided only by occasional monoliths often flanked by more furniture and artwork. Rick Owens is one of the most divisive and unpredictable fashion designers ever and for many years, today we are going to show you his Parisian home!

The whole place was purchased by the owner in 2004, after being vacant for 20 years. This was once the headquarters of the French Socialist Party, and Rick said of it: "I think it was too difficult for most people to take it on — not too many people can do it the way we did. We just ripped things out, but left the concrete floors and some of the other things — the bare bones are perfect.

The house features Owens-designed paintings and furniture and each piece confirms the fashion designer's creativity, mixing luxurious leather and peeling walls, wooden and chrome surfaces. We love his irreverent coolness! The amazement and wonder you feel looking at these images is the same as when you first stand before his set of furniture because you don't expect the combination of shapes and materials. We have been visiting his showrooms with new furnishings and lights during the last edition of the Milan Design Week, and would fall in love with his designs again and again!
