For its 70th anniversary, Moncler has announced seven designers will each have their turn at reimagining its iconic Maya jacket. This time around Rick Owens will take up the baton, with an iteration modelled by Michèle Lamy and set to drop on November 5. Speaking on the design, Owens said, "I applied the architecturally quilted shoulders that I introduced in my men's Fall/Winter 2021 collection called Gethsemane. It was one of the four shows I did on Venice’s lido beach in Italy during the Covid lockdowns. We refer to them as our girdered shoulders – symbolically meant to support the weight of contemporary adversities."

His first solo exhibition Poetica de Domina - Poetry of a Lady, portrays the relationship he sees between humankind and its own creations.

They will be on display at the Albus Lumen Société space in Bondi.
