here is the article in case others are interested http://www.highsnobiety.com/2016/09/14/rick-owens-interview-eugene-rabkin/
Overall its an ok article, i think Rick led it really well and thats what made it interesting. Eugene is not interesting at all. Also i don't think SZ does what SF does. SZ tries to filter to only that style. SF welcomes all.
Maybe Fok/Synth can get a chat with Rick
SZ is ultimately Eugene's brand plus other things he seems cool or acceptable. Styleforum is like a big outdoor market plus down square. I run the place, and even bring a few things to sell, but ultimately, the richness contra from the diverse community.
