Brush up on the cult designer with this short film courtesy of VFiles

There's more to Rick Owens than asymmetrical leather jackets, genital-flashing fashion and rogue political slogan bearing models. In this video clip, narrated by a robot, online fashion platform VFiles have condensed the designer’s illustrious career into four short minutes. From his boundary-breaking runway shows to his work with fetish photographer Rick Castro to his wife – and icon in her own right – Michele Lamy, the film is a crash course in one of America’s most important designers.
