MASTER OF THE ELEMENTS: THE WORLD OF RICK OWENS AT SELFRIDGES

If, dear reader, when in London and walking down Oxford Street, you spot what looks like a giant Rick Owens towering over the double-decker buses and waving what looks like a giant Olympic torch, fear not: you are not hallucinating. A polysterene torso of the designer, made by the British sculptor Doug Jennings (creator of the (in)famous statue of Owens pissing) and weighing a humble 1.5 tons, was erected yesterday on Selfridges fa├žade to celebrate twenty years since the inception of the label and the opening of “The World of Rick Owens” project in store.
