If there were a galaxy brain meme about scarves, the first section would be for a classic wool scarf — it’s a sensible selection and a foundation to the winter wardrobe. The ladder would work its way down past snoods and quilted down scarves to the final, galaxy-brained character, next to whom would be the caption: Rick Owens Knot Down Jacket.
With Kyle Kuzma sporting this out-there piece as he walked in to face the Nets earlier this week, the Rick Owens Knot Down Jacket has gone viral. It's no surprise that Kuzma's style choice has caused a bit of discussion on social media, with commenters divided over the design. Fellow NBA star Danny Green commented: "Bruh TF goin on over here?!?" while Michael Rapaport chimed in: "My Dude where is you going my man?". On the other hand, names like Kristaps Porzingis loved the look, commenting: "🔝🐐".
This all-black, down-filled taffeta jacket blows all other neck-protecting garments out of the water with its enormous built-in scarf. Stemming from the back of the jacket in a wing-like display, the goose down-insulated strip extends over the shoulders and under the wearer’s chin.
In classic Rick Owens style, this piece is defined by its striking proportions, emphasized by the black palette. A cropped body contrasts with extra-long sleeves, which feature rib-knit inset cuffs. The enormous wrap-around scarf tops off one of the season’s boldest garments.
