Taking over a former antique shop, minimalist bad boy Rick Owens has forged ahead with a London flagship, featuring some intriguing items. "To enhance the mood of the store, a series of one-off items include first editions of E.F. Benson’s 1916 novel 'The Freaks of Mayfair,' and DVDs of Alla Nazimova’s 1923 silent film adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s 'Salome.' Perhaps the most chilling prop however is the wax sculpture of Rick Owens' head. Shoppers can also dip their hand into a candle bowl of gray and white m&ms which feature Owens’ logo." Sounds scrumptious! [Hypebeast]
