Food lovers and fashionistas rejoice! The Rick Owens x Barneys New York burger has arrived. What I just wrote seems like a soundbite from Zoolander, but it is absolutely true.
The famed designer linked up with the head chef of Barneys signature restaurant and made the fast-food favorite to coincide with his "Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman" retrospective at the luxury department store. The exhibition takes a look back at Rick's illustrious 24-year career in the industry. Why did the Paris-based designer decide to make a cheeseburger out of all things? Well, before the Goth god relocated to the City of Love, he ate a burger daily from his local restaurant in LA. Hey, maybe all this time he stayed in shape just to not feel guilty about consistenly indulging in scrumptious sandwiches.
The OwensBurger is only available for a few more days at the upscale cafe chain Freds Downtown at Barneys, which is located in Chelsea. You're probably thinking, "Damn, how much are these joints?!?" Fortunately, the burger is a mere $28 (sounds type crazy, but at least it isn't as pricey as his alligator leather jackets).
