During the launch party held in April for Rick Owens‘s Birkenstock collaboration, photographer Paul Kooiker was on hand to shoot select guests in an intimate studio setting — from the waist down. Having had their feet recently massaged with Birkenstock‘s new moisturizing lotion, guests were invited to pose against a weathered paper backdrop so Kooiker could capture them in his signature monochrome style. What results is a lot of jarring, stark imagery of feet and sandals, to say the least, along with a shot of Owens’s wife, Michèle Lamy.
This limited-edition zine will be given with any Rick Owens x Birkenstock purchase at select Rick Owens stores. Elsewhere, the Paris-based designer revealed more collaborative Birkenstock styles for Fall/Winter 2018.
