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.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
