LONDON — Rick Owens has made a new home in London for his romantic, Gothic-edged designs.
The Paris-based designer has opened his first store here in what was formerly an antiques store on Mayfair’s old-world South Audley Street, nearby London’s new hot retail district of Mount Street. “The fact that it was around the corner and it wasn’t on Mount Street was a super plus — it was such a beautiful corner,” said the raven-haired Owens, clad in a black shawl and trousers and black-and-white high-top sneakers, as he put the finishing touches on the store. “It was a little bit wallflower, it wasn’t right in the middle of the dance.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
