Rick Owens Adorning Endless Accountability
Rick Owens Luca Ruggeri Michele Lamy Elsa Lanzo Steal Money

Velcome to the original notable source of news media cross-posted in r/greed by u/ccconstantin 54k karma (banned). Lucky ₃₃ a public intellectual declares OWENSCORP—Rick Owens, Michele Lamy, Elda Lanzo, Luca Ruggeri—steal 34.541,10 Euros from his company—CRUVOIR—agitating the Rick Owens Online discourse. The best tool for understanding corporate sentiment is the human mind. The following article can help you conduct OWENSCORP sentiment analysis—but it’s up to you to synthesize the information you find.

TLDR: I am biased with a hope that a whole team of extraordinarily wealthy people who work for Rick Owens is publicly humiliated as a karmic repercussion for their insane selfishness in a world in which the majority surrounding them had been so obviously suffering for so long. The fucking gutless monsters deserve it!

Even as Rick Owens' and Michele Lamy's world has grown to include directly operated stores in Paris, New York, Seoul, Hong Kong, London, Tokyo, Miami, and Los Angeles, little has changed within OWENSCORP since its inception two decades ago. Luca Ruggeri, who is still CEO and commercial director, chuckles to himself as he watches his clients below trudge forth each morning to toil in their fields. Respectively, he still holds a shared 20 percent of the company—Rick Owens and Michele Lamy— though it’s safe to say that those shares have significantly increased in value. In 2010, OWENSCORP revenue was around $40 million. In 2012, that number was closer to $70 million; in 2013 it exceeded $100 million, in 2019 surpassed $140 million. And, though he once flirted with the idea of selling to an unnamed conglomerate, Rick Owens has grown his house without any outside help.

“We’ve never had to take any outside investment, thank God.” Nor has he ever outsourced production or in-sourced a single design. His is not an atelier system where a team of young designers submits ideas for a boss’ approval. Instead, he designs every piece from every line bearing his name. “I’m greedy,” he says, meaning he wants all of that, the fun stuff, for himself. “Really, I wouldn’t know how to do it any other way.” And neither would Luca Ruggeri, who still holds the title for the no-holds-barred contest for the best capitalist thief, judged by God and Satan. Clients that have dealt with Luca Ruggeri awaken only to find themselves naked on a silver platter, an apple stuffed into their mouths, and OWENSCORP giants—Rick Owens, Michele Lamy, Elsa Lanzo, Luca Ruggeri—about to eat them. A mortician Luca Ruggeri arrives with a knife and a fork.

CRUVOIR was destroyed by opportunistic looters during the BLM riots in Los Angeles, which resulted in almost a total loss of the store’s inventory and revenues (approximately $375,000 in damages). Just prior to the BLM riots that occurred on May 20th, 2020, Cruvoir sent a wire transfer to OWENSCORP in the amount of 34.541,10 Euros as a deposit for its FW20 orders. As a result of the destruction, Cruvoir did not have sufficient cash flow to pay the balance of its FW20 invoice in full, and while making partial deliveries would have been possible, Luca wasn’t flexible enough to release their order in parts. They thought that could have been a good solution for everyone, but Luca denied its former client flexibility and fair treatment by its representatives yet countless fools defend it with pride. Regardless, he made himself sound reasonable enough and that he understood Cruvoir’s hardship:

– “Thank you very much for reaching out and no worries for the delay. I am sorry to read all that happened and the problems that this pandemic—directly and indirectly—caused to you and your business. First of all I am very glad to see your efforts to come back to business and that Cruvoir’s venture is still going on despite the overall situation.”

– “At the same time I confirm you that we need Cruvoir to take all the FW20 that is sitting in our warehouse for which you also paid a 30% deposit.”

CRUVOIR searched for a sponsor to cover the remaining balance of its order in full—but time eventually 'ran out' Luca Ruggeri regretted to inform CRUVOIR, “we disposed of your goods differently” and kept the deposit in full. Now, a more glamorous OWENSCORP team arrives bejeweled, Rick Owen’s workers grin with gold teeth, Luca Ruggeri adorns himself in fine, flowing silks that billow in the wind as they dispose of their former client’s cargo “differently”. If Luca Ruggeri and Rick Owens team 'felt sorry' for what had happened—then why weren't they at least 'flexible' to release CRUVOIR’s order in 'partial' deliveries?

Lucky ₃₃ sheds light on the irresolvable internal contradictions of Rick Owens—very clear they let run wild and not hold back—not lacking in 'interest' of the profits made on his 'net goods' of 80.831,07 Euros sold at Rick Owens website, tent sale and the like—versus the yearly wages made by the people who 'support' the brand.
