Highly limited and offering an uncompromising brutalist aesthetic
Exhibiting an architectural vision of menswear, Rick Owens’ maximalist outlook and END.’s minimalist tendencies fuse to deliver an experimental capsule, focussing on the second life of the garment and brimming with Owens’ trademark attitude.
Highly limited and offering an uncompromising brutalist aesthetic, the capsule embodies the visual universe the Californian designer has carefully cultivated throughout his tenure. Presenting an adapted version of the seminal DRKSHDW runner stretch sock, END. imparts its own street-ready perspective by way of personalised dual-stripe branding to the cuff of the left sneaker; infusing the dimension-shifting pair with a pared-back minimalist perspective. Housing a single pocket and finished in the master of darkness’ favourite black, the stretchy upper rises high up the leg and sits atop a shark-tooth rubber outsole to complete the boldly brutalist style.
