Parisian-based fashion designer Rick Owens, who has garnered quite a cult following in Hong Kong thanks to his raw edgy designs, has opened his first stand-alone boutique in the city.
The new 1,200 square foot boutique is minimalist to the max with bare white walls showing off just the clothes. The boutique carries the most current women’s ready-to-wear collections from his extensive lines – Rick Owens, Rick Owens Lilies, Rick Owens Dark Shadow and Rick Owens Palais Royal Fur. Typical Rick Owens pieces include high priestess shrouds, architectural leather jackets, bias cuts and zipped outfits.
Rick Owens describes the thinking behind his clothes his “autobiography.” He is quoted as saying: “They are the calm elegance I want to get to and the damage I’ve done on the way. They are an expression of tenderness and raging ego. They are an adolescent idealization and its inevitable defeat.”
