In support of this year’s Birkenstock collaboration, Rick Owens commissioned photographer Paul Kooiker to shoot a complementary 16-page zine. The images were captured at a special launch party back in April, as Kooiker took photographs of the guests in attendance, who were of course donning Owens’ Birkenstocks.

Individuals, including Owens’ wife and muse, Michèle Lamy, are seen pictured against a tattered backdrop, showcasing various styles from the collaborative collection.

The zine by Kooiker will be available for free with a purchase of the Birkenstocks at participating Rick Owens stores.
