Rick Owens is gearing up for a collaboration with German footwear company Birkenstock, as confirmed by Business of Fashion.
Due to arrive as part of Birkenstock’s traveling mobile pop-up space dubbed the “The Birkenstock Box,” the upcoming drop sees the designer reinterpret three classic styles from the brand’s footwear roster using felt, cowhide and full-grain leather.
For those in the Los Angeles area on March 16, the new collection will be unveiled at the pop-up shop located in front of Owens’ La Brea store alongside styles from the brand’s main line and select Rick Owens pieces.
Speaking of the collaboration, Owens said: “I agree with the values Birkenstock has promoted all along — steady longevity and personal well being. And being able to combine our aesthetics with this project together in LA feels really satisfying.”
