Over the past few years, we've certainly seen plenty of unexpected collaborations. From luxury houses collaborating with streetwear labels to fashion brands making a break for the food industry, and so on, and at this point, it seems like nothing could come as a surprise.

That was until Rick Owens announced a collaboration with Australian skincare label Aesop on Instagram.

The collaboration includes a ceramic candle that arrives in three different sizes, as well as a carefully curated Travel Kit. The selection includes some of Owens' favorites – the Coriander Seed Body Cleanser, Resolute Hydrating Body Balm, Classic Shampoo, and Classic Conditioner, as well as a captivating fragrance built to be "experienced in a variety of ways."

"I LIKE TO THINK THAT WE BOTH SHARE A DESIRE TO BE AN OPTION FOR THOSE PURSUING A GENTLE, CAREFULLY CONSIDERED LIFE. MY DESIGNS MIGHT BE CONSIDERED BOLD BUT THE FOUNDATION IS ONE OF BENEVOLENCE," Owens wrote.

"I AM ASKING PEOPLE TO CONSIDER AESTHETIC OPTIONS THAT MIGHT NOT BE STANDARD AND OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO DIFFERENT KINDS OF BEAUTY," he continues, adding that the skincare collaboration is wildly different from how his fashion is perceived. The Aesop collaboration is far from wild and provocative, and instead focuses on drifting away from the fashion industry to create something different.

"THE FASHION WORLD CAN BE A VERY RIGID AND RESTRICTIVE PLACE AND IF I CAN ENCOURAGE PUSHING ON THOSE RESTRICTIONS, MAYBE I CAN ENCOURAGE THEM TO BE MORE OPEN TO OTHER IDEAS REGARDING TOLERANCE AND KINDNESS IN THINKING."

The Rick Owens x Aesop fragrance is accompanied by a string of 10 porous ceramic beads, meant to act as a "reassuring amulet."

If you're looking to get your hands on the collaboration, it releases on March 21 online at Aesop as well as in-store at select Rick Owens and Aesop locations.

The candles retail between $45 and $225 USD, and the Travel Kit is priced at $190.
