RICK OWENS (Paris) Zip Wallet

If you are distinguishing between clothing and high fashion, between the stuff we wear and the ideas that challenge us, California-born, Paris-based designer Rick Owens aka "The Prince of Dark Design" surely belongs on the renegade edge of fashion. Goth-inflected silhouettes, alienesque palette, transgender shapes… Owens' sensibilities are almost unlike anything else. Even if you don't particularly appreciate his severe, austere, sunglass-wearing-monks-from-the-future aesthetic, you'd be hard-pressed not to recognise his skills. Despite their apparent toughness and severity, his designs remain supple and eminently wearable.

Retaining the label's esoteric codes, Owens keeps it compact and secure with this zip wallet, constructed with rich pebbled leather.
(RRP US$355)

Tilda Swinton, the Oscar winning-actress, is photographed by Tim Walker for the latest issue of W magazine. She looks completely crazy, and therefore that much cooler. In all of these shots, she is wearing Rick Owens boots.

1000-year-old Nordic vampire Eric Northman also wears Rick Owens, as he tapes his smiley PSA to win back the human public. (True Blood Season 4 Episode 1 "She's Not There", 26 Jun, 2011.)
