A self-confessed fan of the “Birks”, Owens has been seen to sport the footwear on the beach in Venice during the warm summer months.  Says he of the collection, “I didn’t just want to decorate them, I wanted to corrupt their architecture — respectfully!  I elongated the straps to almost hit the floor and added more eyelets as a decorative element.”  He continues, “I like the extending and exaggerating and dragging in my own collections as a quiet reminder that we don’t have to conform to standard parameters in design, or maybe even thought.”
