Olivier Rizzo: A Tribute to His Obsessions

November 23, 2015 12:56 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

To reduce Olivier Rizzo down to the title of “stylist” is an underestimation; he is more like the member of a quasi-religious cult, the keeper of a pop culture flame, determined to propagate heartfelt emotion through the visual culture of fashion.

And yet this is someone who does not take himself entirely seriously—I mean, how could he? Because ultimately there is something very human about Olivier Rizzo and his desire to communicate with the outside world his interior obsessions. Rather democratically, he wants everyone else to be obsessed by them too. Here Rizzo discusses a few.
