Buy Less Clothes & Go To The Gym Instead

Rick Owens in jeans and black t-shirtI love that Rick Owens has hair extensions and stack boots & says he’s inspired by things such as “fog” “Barbara Streisand” and “K.I.S.S.”  And he’s quotable too:

“Working out is the the modern couture. No outfit is going to make you look or feel as good as having a fit body. Buy less clothes and go to the gym instead. Trying to talk with your clothes is passive-aggressive….Isn’t it more chic to be free?”

But what sign is the guy? All i can find online is that he is born in 1962…He vibes very Air so maybe a Libra, Aqua or Gemini – he could be a Scorpio with Aqua Rising? There was actually a whole lot of multiple conjunct Aquarians born in 1962. Maybe he is one of them??  And any thoughts on his philosophy?

Color me off – sort of. I just found a post that his birthday is 11/18 – wiki says 1961 – porterville, CA. At noon – he would be Aqui rising, Aries moon and Scorpio sun
.

Something Very Aquarius is happening and his mark on the world started during the Jupiter in Aqui year in the 90s. I know – it did it for me too. Sags don’t love being married – maybe there’s some loyal Leo rising and a water moon.

Yah he is very interesting…..

I love his philosophy & have been practicing it over the last few years. My jeans do exactly the same thing….

I’m sure if he turned around there would be a little crack showing… lol

Strength & freedom, I would hope he is a gemini

his looks and words remind me very much of (a slightly cleaner version) a scorpy goth artist/ rockstar/ model i met in NYC on one of the nights my saturn return went exact! scorp action fo sho.

yes – after reading about the snake and swan skin obsession would say there was some scorp in there with the libra.

…but even more interesting than him is his wife michelle lamy who seems pretty out there too.

He looks like Herman Munster and Steve Tyler’s love child but his design is truly beautiful – Virgo is in there for sure, either in Venus or Moon with all those clean lines and monochromatic tones. But with the black obsession and the edginess I’d say Scorp sun or asc. Scorp men can be bloody fugly but for some unknown reason one still finds oneself thinking about shagging them. Go figure. OR def could be Aries as referenced by bubble and RLP due to likeness to Arians Iggy and Steve above.

Don’t know what sign he is but he’s revolting. Eeeeuuw!!
Looks like Fabio with that long hair. Not a fan of long hair on guys.
A Taurus perhaps – obsession with fur and all that’s tactile?

eew – he uses swansdown fur in his work… http://www.hintmag.com/hinterview/rickowens/rickowens3.php “What’s the most incredible fur you’ve worked with? Last spring’s collection was all about swans and snakes because I’ve always been inspired by Marlene Dietrich’s famous swansdown coat. I was able to get swansdown from Caron, the French parfumier that’s the only place that still makes swansdown powderpuffs. When you touch it, your hand kind of goes numb because it’s so soft. We also made a hand-embossed mousseline handpainted with scales to simulate shed snakeskin. I would love to work with mouse skin. I think someone did it recently. I… Read more »

Soooo glad he’s NOT a Sagg!!!
A Sagg man could only look like he does by accidentally
putting on his girlfriend’s clothes as he jumped out of bed to dress
in the dark.
Cuban heels tho’ are very attactive on some men, RM Williams style or Texan.
Platforms on men remind me of Gary Glitter….

hey why dont we just email and ask him ? !!! 🙂 anyone up for that ? are there rules about doing that on the internet ? ie if we all talk about “someone” does the “someone” politely pretend it is happening in a parellel universe and not really about them ? or can we cross reference with the “someone” spoken about ?

two things – i found an article written in 2002 which states .. two months short of his 41 birthday .. and that was published 1 sep 02 so that might make him a libra scorp ? if the article was written in aug ? speculative also i would like say THANK YOU MYSTIC for always having such interesting posts and folks because certainly you expand my horizons – i had never heard of steampunk before or this guy either and in fact of many of the peeps featured ! also thus …. Long straight hair, dyed black, framed his… Read more »

Über Virgo

He’s super contradictory, so I’ll go for Gem or Aqua: Bagging fashion whilst raking in serious $$$ from it, saying expression through clothing is pass agg while putting together super constructed pieces, looks like both a gym junkie and a junkie…A walking head trip.

Plus Sagg rising with the talk of freedom and his obvious love of physical exercise/expression.

he has a horse face “look” most sag and aries I know have some I will say he is a saggie because he’s looks kinda sloppy. If he was an aries he would look a bit cleaner.

pegasus

This reminds me of a story back in ’61 that all children born after ’62 would be karma free.
Born with sun & 5 planets in Aquarius is sure a lot of Aqua in ’62 charts.
The consensus seems to be Sagg, but he doesn’t attract me, so maybe not:)
Do like his style tho’…………maybe Aries.

No Tom Ford is famed for being a Virgo.
Rick Owens has left no trail of his birthdate or i don’t think mystic woudl have put it up here.
No virgo could do hair like that or shoes like that. And my dear poor Nico – where do you get the idea virgos like th e grotesque?

Nico
Nico

Rick Owens is famed for being a virgo, isnt he? his anal approach to clothing design and dark earthy colours get offset by his rigorous approach to exercise and his ‘california king’ sized furniture designs….stubborn as a mule in his taste. hes also got that famed virgo appreciation for shock and the grotesque….he used to hang out in tranny hustler bars

My guess
Saggo with aqua rising
the long hair is a characteristic of the hippy saggo BUT not straightening so im guessing Aqua rising
ps. No dude should ever wear heels like that 😛

Well, now that I know he’s into guys I feel safe…. :0 Joking, but read he’s bi also. Did look him up to get him from other angles pix wise. To me, he’s not outright ug, just not my type. I like manly men without the extentions. I mean when I put my hands on someone’s head I want to feel the real deal not some messy junk.. Guess thats my Aries preference as well (the head thing…). I imagine that he has these nicely developed biceps but skinny, little spindly legs. Could be wrong of course but see it… Read more »

yeah what saggigal said.

hes got a bit of 90s john galliano going on. as for his philosophy. mmm. why do people never say go and labour more in the fileds or carry more shopping home for old ladies or dig potatoes up. i always think gyms are such energy graveyards.

Savannah

Oh gawd Aqua I’m with you there, EXACTLY what I thinking! Everytime I see men that are buffed but never done a days hard work I think that, I just can’t get turned on by them.

saggigal

i totally get some sagg there- the body first, fashion second thing is very sagg, and its actually completely my philosophy, which is why i spend copious amounts at le gym, and less on clothes. but his actual ‘look’ is so scorp. i dont pick up alot of air at all, but those buff arms mixed with gothic long hair/heels says to me sagg with scorp rising? or some kind of combo.

saggigal
saggigal

but he is very unappealing to me…so def. not a typical sagg!

But I can just see the centaur missing bits attached to that body – looking very saggo but with an aquarian type smirk that reminds me of my first love – an aquarian. Also maybe some cappy with long face and bone structure.

I totally felt a Scorpionic vibe to look at him, could be an Aries with that fine forehead, I reckon a Libran moon would be nice addition to that combo with lots of Aqua wierdness to back it up… What are the most crazy Goths anyway? Marilyn Manson is Cappy.

unpredictable pisces
unpredictable pisces

you know, great bone structure in that face, i think Cap might be a big part of it – and that no-nonsense fashion advice about getting the physique sorted first. I wish I could say piscean influence but I don’t think so this time. Well not as much as other influences….definitely Sagg something. Maybe a 5th (creative) or 8th (intense i guess) sagg-ness. plus some “f*ck the norm” vibe in there, that’s the pisces part i’d like to nominate but could equally be aries or aqua. the Scorp just for the strong wierdness (good wierdness of course)

starstrokes

The scary part is he has the same physique as my partner (!) Archer with Aqua Moon & Taurus rising…I reckon the fog/fashion thing alludes to a strong Neptune in Scorp? & some ‘ntrestin Pisces stuff.

I feel that he’s maybe a Sagg. You know always moving and active.
My guess is Sagg sun/Aqua Rising/Libra Moon. Because, as Taurean Alchemist said “he IS a designer” haha

he IS a bit scorpy looking but who is more body conscious than a Virgo? Then again, those high heels are so nostalgic so must be some Kataka in there – maybe he has Mercury in Kataka, Sun in Virgo with Scorp Rising and Moon in Libra (because, darlings, he is a designer)…??
