Rick Owens To Open Boutique in L.A.
Rick Owens, the Paris-based designer who started his brand in 1994, is to open his first store in L.A.
Located on a stretch of La Brea Avenue, the 5,200-square-foot, concrete-floored space will have high ceilings supported by angular beams, a water tank releasing slow-motion bubbles and a wall emitting fog.
Designed by longtime architectural collaborator Anna Tumaini, the store at 819 N. La Brea Ave. — which is to open soon ; the precise date had not been determined by press time — will feature the entire Owens collections.
“I think L.A. is a utopia,” Owens says. “A lot of the things people don’t like about it are things I love about it. It’s hard to find your corner, but it’s nice that there is so much space in between everything. If you have something to do and someone to love, then you’re OK.”
Rick owens is exclusive to 4.
