rick owens has opened his first store on the u.s. west coast on la brea avenue in los angeles. the space is a 450 sqm. [4,844 sq.ft.] warehouse built in the 1920s that used to house a ribbon factory. the rick owens team along with long time collaborator anna tumaini have gutted and reconfigured the whole building, utilising brutalist materials, high ceilings supported by massive angular beams and beautiful delicate detailing. the store also features the now patented rick owens fog machine, ejaculating every five minutes, and an abstract version of a swimming pool, a floor to ceiling tank in the middle of the space that releases bubbles one by one. the store carries the entire rick owens range of apparel, accessories and footwear, in addition to the master's furniture line. location: 819 north la brea avenue [west hollywood].
