In this month's Interview magazine, Rick Owens talked to Dior Homme designer Kris Van Assche about what his parents think of his job. "Well, they’re a little puzzled. But they try to be kind," said Owens. Do they go to Owens's store to see the wax sculpture of him urinating? "Yeah, they don’t look. There are a lot of things that they’ve chosen not to look at in my life. The way that my mom puts it, she goes, 'Well, as long as nobody gets hurt.'" [Interview]
