As part of our £15,000 giveaway, we asked Rick Owens to put together the pieces he would select if he won. The selection focuses on a tight selection of 'beautiful things,' as Owens himself says. A range of counterculture books betray a dark edge, focusing on punk rock, occult mysticism and sixties religious cults. Luggage comes from young brands Haerfest and J. W. Anderson, whilst a shroud-like cashmere scarf from Thamanyah forms a majestic centrepiece to the selection. Owens completed his pick with 'a few stacks' of P.A.M. socks and Kumba incense sticks: 'when I buy something, I like to buy them in multiples to have them for a long time... I love having things in stacks.'
(EDIT: @ Sipang) Truth. If you are going to ask upward of $6,000 for a cashmere blanket it had damn well better be thick as shite.
That Thamanyah thing says it's "slightly sheer" so it's probably got less yarn in it than a jacket would. Which is grotesque because there's almost no "design"/"construction" whatsoever.
I would much rather have the thick-looking Elder Statesman version, though I remember somebody in MC selling cashmere blankets by Hermes a couple years ago and they beat the pants off of both of these.
fuck wearing sweaters with whales on them, i wear actual whales. whale skin shako, a nice whale skin cape and my shoes are made from whale skin plastered on whale bones. i also light my way with a whale oil lamp and all my accessories are scrimshaw.
