Displaying an architectural vision of menswear, END. and Rick Owens DRKSHDW fuse minimalist tendencies with a maximalist outlook.
Presenting a masterful display of luxury-grunge style, the high-fashion visionary and retailer deliver a highly limited eight-piece capsule, centring around the second life of the garment. A union of the Californian designer’s unparalleled prowess and END.’s street-ready perspective, the exclusive offering encapsulates Owens’ dedication and honed vision of menswear.
Adapting seminal pieces from the Rick Owens DRKSHDW archive, END. and the master of dark beauty fuse an experimental perspective with a streetwear sensibility. Firmly rooted within the visual universe cultivated by Owens throughout his progressive tenure, this capsule offers eight key styles spanning from outerwear to footwear. Embellished with an interpretation of END.’s iconic logo, each piece is detailed with a “DRK.” woven brand patch and Owens’ signature dual stripes, repositioned and personalised with printed END. branding.
Consisting of a knee-length hooded parka, a reversible flight jacket, a reconstructed pullover hoody and tee, Owens and END. build a selection of garments brimming with the Paris-based artist’s quintessential essence. Supplemented with cropped waxed denim jeans and a pair of the designer’s instantly recognisable Pods shorts, the Owens silhouette retains its glamour and rock’n’roll attitude. Complete with a sock runner sneaker and an elongated keyring, this capsule collection offers a depiction of Rick Owens’ uncompromising vision.
A collection of garments that proffer Rick Owens’ unique aesthetic, the designer commits to an exacting brutalist outlook, delivering a bold statement of honed visual codes and values.
Fusing Rick Owens’ instantly recognisable silhouette with END.’s contemporary outlook, the capsule will be available exclusively at END. from September 7th, via END. Launches.
