Designed by Gonzalez Haase AAS, BIRKENSTOCK’S mobile, spatial retail concept continues its travel in the US, moving to the West coast in partnership with Rick Owens with a private launch Event on April 17th, 2018, accompanied by the public opening from April 17th through 21st, 2018.

Following stops in Berlin with Andreas Murkudis, Barneys New York and the Whitney Museum in New York and 10 Corso Como Milan, the Los Angeles outpost offers yet another uniquely singular viewpoint in design and architecture. The BIRKENSTOCK BOX consists of converted freight containers, which play host to each partner’s interior concept and merchandise proposition. In this site-specific iteration, the Box’s interior is designed by Rick Owens and incorporates the retail design elements from the Rick Owens New York store. Says Rick Owens, “I like a steady original invested in the long game.”

The Rick Owens BIRKENSTOCK BOX will carry a limited collection of Birkenstock styles, along with a curated assortment of Rick Owens looks, objects, furniture, legwear and accessories. Bespoke and limited styles designed by Rick Owens feature the classic sandal styles Arizona, Madrid and Boston in four different fabrications, consisting of army felt, suede, full grain leather and longhair cow fur – all with a full leather foot bed lining. The capsule is completed with two legwear styles. The bespoke Rick Owens x BIRKENSTOCK styles will be offered for pre-order starting April 2nd on all Rick Owens channels. In addition, they will be available on birkenstock.com from April 17th, 2018, onwards.

Says Oliver Reichert, CEO of BIRKENSTOCK, ”We are pleased to collaborate with Rick Owens on this genuinely creative venture for the BOX project in Los Angeles.”
