Synthesizing the opposites

This season black meets white, while the grunge becomes more glamorous and sensual than ever. The boutique “Mageia” (means magic in English) here in Athens, welcomes the Lilies and the DRKSHDW collections by the American designer Rick Owens and invite us to a magical journey to a dark, yet sensitive side.

Lilies collection addresses to women who know how to get all the attention; women that look powerful, but behind the mask have a fragile sensitivity, just like the flower of lily. The soft dresses with the perfect fit on the feminine body and the pleats –many, many pleats this time for Rick Owens- accentuate the woman’s curves and become a key item for a sexy, but always classy appearance.

The DRKSHDW collection, on the other hand, is addressed to women who love to be mysterious and eccentric. Zippers on leather perfectos and plain T-shirts synthesize the image of a woman who choose to conquer, either of being conquered; she is, consequently, tough, savage, clean cut. Away from the usual, the DRKSHDW woman is the man of her life.

Rick Owens is one of the most talented, new designers. Awarded with a CFDA (an award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America) and the support of Vogue, Rick moved to Paris ten years ago and from there he continues to design easy to wear, ideal for the contemporary man and woman clothes.
