Blackbird welcomes Rick Owens to our store with open arms. Contrast, silhouette, luxury, experimentation and true artistry are the words that come to mind when we see his work. The cut and feel of these pieces are something that truly needs to be experienced by everyone, fan or not. The collection's are highly diverse in terms of aesthetic and influence. The leather jackets and long coats speak of dark nights on dim street's or aimless walk's in the forrest, while the sneakers below illustrate just how much this brand is focused on innovation and tech aspects executed successfully by few.
Please stop by the store or call us with any questions regarding this collection and look for more to be arriving in the next few days.
Below are some photos from the Rick Owens store in Tokyo. His use of space and severe angles, and light sets the mood for his collection flawlessly and is a constant inspiration for the work we do everyday.
RICK OWENS - SNEAKER
in black and white
DETAILS: Made from a beautiful calfskin leather in black and white, these high top sneakers are leather lined as well. The first thing we notice is all the geometry in one space. Be it stitch lines or leather panels, this shoe offers a lot for the eye to see with thirteen different panels. Features include ventilation holes across the toe, a heavy duty silver zipper on the inside, seven eyelets for lacing up with extra long laces, and a contrasting woven tab at the top of the tongue. Black and white laces are included. The thick 1 1/4 inch sole is reminiscent of a moon boot, but is perfectly complimentary with the shape of this shoe.
These shoes run true to size. The toe is tall, so you will most likely have some room in the front of the shoe due to this
