Things we love: Rick Owens , Gilt Groupe . Things we are so, so perplexed by: the Rick Owens boots we just found on Gilt Groupe. Allow us to ask a few questions. 1. What exactly are these? (Like, we know they're boots. But... still.) 2. Why did they originally cost $6500? 3. If they were...

>> Afterreports that Balmain would go with an internal candidate to replace Christophe Decarnin, now comes news that Olivier Rousteing, a key deputy of Decarnin's – not Melanie Ward, as previously suggested – is likely the designer of choice. The contract is in the process, and Rousteing's...

Earlier this month Christophe Decarnin was confirmed to have exited Balmain. Now thoughts are turning to who will replace the designer at the label. The latest name to be bandied about isn't Melanie Ward, but Olivier Rousteing, whom reports is "in pole position" to assume the role of creative...

We take solace in the fact that even Jay-Z and Rick Ross know a thing or two about unrequited love. The two rappers have waxed poetic about Rick Owens' luxe wares, only to have the designer go on record saying he's essentially never listening to their music. "I must admit that I'm not that...
