the first store of rick owens in los angeles has minimal lines that still reflects the traditional style of californian architecture—one from many other.
california-born rick owens is a fashion designer, but he has been working on the architecture and interior design of his stores together with the architect anna tumaini.
for the latest store located in la brea, they combined different fields—architecture, fashion and cinema.
the design is a homage to american filmmaker cecil b demille and every detail is arranged as he could have used the space as his set.
the wide, white wall hiding the structure from the main street gets inspiration from movie screens and reflects shiny californian sunlight into the courtyard.
