Rick torches selfridges

To celebrate 20 years of Rick Owens’ label, Selfridges has installed a 25ft effigy of the designer, complete with flaming torch, onto its famous façade. The stunt coincides with the store’s autumn 14 The Masters project, which includes window installations and an exclusive 20-piece Rick Owens for Selfridges collaborative collection.

Cheap Monday pools its resources in Sweden

The Cheap Monday show, which was hosted in the city’s central swimming pool, provided a Stockholm Fashion Week highlight. Once models had taken to the catwalk they jumped fully clothed into the pool, giving the front row a soaking. Towelling themselves down were Drapers’ Graeme Moran and Harvey Nichols buyers Emma Anderson and Rachel Fordham. See next week’s issue for our Stockholm report.

  • In the meantime, check out some video footage from Stockholm fashion week here.
