Rick Owens is a master of subtle overstatement. For his Birkenstock Limited Collection, the acclaimed designer chose a playful approach, confronting the canon of minimalist design with luxury materials. Soft suede leather enhances the natural vibe of the Boston Clog. The design is transformed by sophisticated details; Owens chose to extend the straps integrated into the upper, allowing them to almost brush the ground. The shoe and the buckles are in matte-finish Drkshdw––a colour that has been a constant in Owens‘ collections for decades. To create the hue, the designer experimented with khaki fabrics, dyeing them black and bleaching them before overdyeing. The result is a distinctive shade that further enhances the natural character of this classic Birkenstock style.
