Rick Owen’s wife, muse, creative collaborator and business partner, Michèle Lamy is revered as one of the fashion industry’s true eccentrics. She cuts a distinctive silhouette even in the fashion circles of Paris, owning to her singular gothic priestess look and gold teeth. Lamy first met Owens through his then-boyfriend, hiring him as a patternmaker for her own line, Lamy. At the time she was living in Los Angeles and running Les Deux Café, one of Hollywood’s true insider spots, based behind an unmarked door in a car park. Owens and Lamy moved to Paris in 2002 to reopen the furrier house Revillon and introduce Rick’s signature line, for which she is a muse and creative consultant. Lamy also works with London-based designer Gareth Pugh.
