Master of the elements; the world of Rick Owens at Selfridges

I got even more excited about my London- visit next week when I realized that’s the time Selfridges are celebrating 20 years since the inception of the label and the opening of ” The world of Rick Owens ” project store.
It is celebrated by giving Owens four display windows with a theme chosen by the master himself; Oscar Wilde’s Salomé and a giant statue of Owens, holding something that looks like a Olympic torch. You can find several objects in limited edition inside and I am really looking forward to have a look at it all- even if the price tag will be way over my budget.

Rick Owens.

I’ve been thinking about this text for quite some time now. How I in the most respectful way would introduce you to one of the most important people and designers. How I could make you understand his greatness. I came to the conclusion that the best way would actually be to just show you pictures. Not only is he making clothes.
