OUR DAYS
PARIS

One of the Fashion industry's biggest names, Richard Saturnino Owens, is an American fashion visionary with Paris as his creative base. As The Mighty Internet states: his groundbreaking collections have earned him the nickname The Lord of Darkness. Influencing countless designers, his gothic aesthetic boasts a fashion-sportswear hybrid with gender-neutral design in the hottest color of the season… always black.

FEATURED TECHNIQUE

CHROMOLITHOGRAPHY

chromolithography --ar 3:1
Originating from lithography, chromolithography is a method for making multi-color prints. The lithographic process is chemical: an image is applied to a porous limestone or zinc plate with a grease-based crayon or ink.

Referring to Chromolithography sometimes evokes certain Epoques, subjects, and themes (see the Istanbul Merchant above). Chromolithograph print’s colors and the smoothness of a chromolithographic image seem to transition nicely through Remasters.
