The look-book of Fall/Winter 2014-2015 menswear collection by Rick Owens is a little, big artwork, made by Rick Castro. The brilliant photographer – who is also the owner of Hollywood art gallery Antebellum, focused on fetish culture and erotic art -, recently told me about the way this work has arisen. It is a touching story where refinement joins to emotions and poetry and art, lyricism and incisiveness overlaps to tenderness. The solemn, conceptual male elegance by Rick Owens has successfully depicted as a timeless idea, which has made concrete by subverting the mainstream idea of beauty connected to youth and instead by using a series of over sixty models (Paul E. Marshall, 62 years old; Turk Magnanti, 65 years old; Robert Sides, 73 years old), including also Al Castro, the father of photographer who is 92 years old. It was the first time for the father to feature in a shooting and he did it, he posed for his son, just because he loves him. In fact the photographs document the love of Al for Rick, shining in his eyes. A silent love which yesterday lacked dialogue – as Rick told me -, has recomposed during this circumstance and has evidenced by facts, by being and being for his own son. It’s the wonder of unconditional love, as I told to Rick, while he confessed me he was sorta crying. Thus this look book is really precious, as it talks about fashion as a lifestyle, subverts the ordinary and embodies what is extraordinary as male elegance and emotions, something going beyond time.

Il look-book della collezione uomo autunno/inverno 2014-2015 di Rick Owens è un piccolo, grande capolavoro, realizzato da Rick Castro. Il brillante fotografo – che è anche il proprietario della galleria d’ arte di Hollywood Antebellum, rivolta alla cultura fetish e l’ arte erotica – mi ha recentemente raccontato come è nata quest’ opera. Un racconto commovente in cui la raffinatezza si unisce alle emozioni e alla poesia e l’ arte, il lirismo e l’ incisività si sovrappongono alla tenerezza. La solenne eleganza concettuale di Rick Owens è stata felicemente felicemente ritratta da Rick sovvertendo l’ idea bellezza di mainstream connessa alla gioventù, avvalendosi di una serie di modelli ultrasessantenni (Paul E. Marshall, 62 anni; Turk Magnanti, 65 anni; Robert Sides, 73 anni) e includendo anche Al Castro, il padre che ha 92 anni. Era la prima volta che suo padre partecipava a un servizio fotografico e lo ha fatto, ha posato per il figlio, soltanto perché lo ama. Le fotografie documentano infatti l’ amore di Al per Rick che brilla nei suoi occhi. Un amore silente che ieri mancava di dialogo – come mi ha detto Rick -, si è ricomposto in questa circostanza ed è stato dimostrato dai fatti, dall’ esserci ed esserci per il proprio figlio. È la meraviglia dell’ amore incondizionato, come dicevo a Rick, mentre mi confessava che stava per mettersi a piangere. Pertanto questo look- book diventa estremamente prezioso, in quanto parla della moda come stile di vita, sovverte l’ ordinario e racchiude in sé ciò che è straordinario come l’ eleganza maschile e le emozioni, qualcosa che va oltre il tempo.
