Rickowensfw08collageWe’re always fans of Rick Owens and his eternal celebration of "grunge couture." Adding even more excitement to his FW08 collection was the promise of a NYC store opening in Tribeca this summer;we’ll no longer have to rush the racks at Barneys or keep our fingers crossed that Net-a-Porter has stock.

Typically working in leather, fur, and various jersey fabrications, we were excited to see denim details in his collection rather than solely in DRKSHDW. With the expansion of retail outlets and the evolution of his collections (remember last season’s striped chiffons?) we’re keeping our eyes open for more denim inspiration from Rick Owens in seasons to come.
