RICK OWENS UNVEILED HI-TOPS WITH WHITE RUBBERIZED BONDAGE

Most of the shoes were kept clean, with white rubberized tape swaddled sporadically. Although much of the shoe is covered up, parts of the high-top outlines of the silhouette, such as the heel, laces, and rubber toecap, can still be seen. Sitting next to two small vent holes, providing easy access, contrasting silver-toned zippers can be found along the medial sides. Completing the minimal feel, the midsole of the shoe is also lined, finished at the heel with three jagged staples. 

White rubberized sneakers by Rick Owens are currently available at $1,076 USD.

Rick Owens has created a flurry of diverse homewares. The designer is known for his sleek, brutalism-inspired furniture; with similar design aesthetics, he is now adding wares to his namesake.

The collection includes ornate furnishings such as silver dessert forks with bone handles, a bronze ashtray filled with dusty gray nitrate, a grail vase made entirely of one piece of rock crystal and a skinny tray based on Egyptian volutes. One notable piece is the "STAG T." A large T-shaped structure made of black plywood and natural moose antler, a common material that is often used in Owens' furniture. It measures at 55 x 30 x 44 cm with a weight of about seven kilograms, which allows it to be used for a number of purposes — like a stool or a stopper. The appearance of each STAG T will differ slightly from piece to piece since its horns are natural. For example, the bronze "DUCK NECK VASE," "BRAZIER" coffee table, "CRYSTAL BOWL" and four-legged "COUPE" soup bowl complete the succinct assemblage.
