American fashion designer Rick Owens looks towards the Far East for his latest retail venture. The Hong Kong store, opened in conjunction with retailer Joyce Boutique, is in fact the largest Rick Owens brick and mortar in Asia, boasting a massive three-storey, 3,800-square-foot space. The store will carry the complete male and female collections, as well as the Drkshdw and accessories line in its beautifully conceptual layout. There is a strong theme of industrial design and customers will notice the table sculpture of Owens himself in a provocative manner. The designer had this to say about the store:
“I’ve designed the store to correspond to a primal ideal I set for myself – quiet emptiness, stone and light. Walls are concrete blocks custom molded with an angular brutalist design I saw on a wall a long time ago in Berlin, and never found again. I might have dreamed it. This wall became a mythological image to me of a futuristic utopian Ruin.”
Head over to the store and check it out if you find yourself in Hong Kong.
