Happy Friday. Love, fashion.

"Shocking" might as well be Rick Owens' middle name. The unconventional designer, known for runway shows that have featured male nudity and models covered in foil, unveiled his newest Hong Kong store this week, and it includes a rather unusual piece of furniture. A mannequin of Owens on all fours with a glass tabletop on his back stands out against the sleek white walls, minimalist design and, you know, the clothes. [Hypebeast]

Can they ever win? American Apparel is being sued again — but this time it's by three former employees who claim their layoffs violated state labor laws. The plaintiffs are seeking lost wages, which could total as much as $1 million. Ouch. [WWD]

Etsy, favored destination for handmade jewelry and monogrammed everything, was valued at over $3.8 billion when it went public on Thursday. The online community, which currently has over 29 million items for sale, sold 13.3 million shares following its opening. Not bad. [Business of Fashion]
