Rick Owens will soon unveil two temporary stores for his DRKSHDW (Dark Shadow) collection. The stores will open at 70-72 Wooster Street in Manhattan from July 16 to October 26, and in London at 30A Redchurch Street from September 4 to October 13, representing the line’s first two freestanding stores. The New York shop will measure 2,500 square feet, while the London boutique will be 215 square feet. The Paris-based designer’s secondary line is a women’s and men’s collection featuring the characteristic Owens’ shapes reinterpreted in denim and knits. DRKSHDW was launched in late 2005 and is mainly manufactured in Italy, retailing for more moderate prices than the designer’s primary line.
