This past December, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles put on an exhibit of Rick Owens’s furniture. If you missed the show, which closed on April 2nd, you can still get the belatedly released book that provides a glimpse into that part of Owens’s oeuvre
During the men’s fashion week in Paris some days ago instead of his usual quiet dinner at home, Rick Owens threw a dance party the day after the show. The occasion was a new video released by Christeene, a drag singer who is Owens’s favorite. The video featured Owens and his partner Michele Lamy doing what they do best, terrorizing accepted aesthetic and sexual norms. You can see the video on Dazed’s website, so we prefer to stick with the imagery from the party itself. Our crew was in attendance, bien sur. Enjoy!

This past weekend Rick Owens reopened his New York boutique on the corner of Crosby and Howard streets in Manhattan. This particular stretch of SoHo has exploded this year with the opening of the 11 Howard hotel and the adjacent interior design shop Oliver Gustav (which coincidentally carries furniture by Rick Owens). The former textile factory building was previously occupied by a Jil Sander store, and has undergone extensive renovations to reflect Owens’s universe.
