CREATIVE PARTNER, POETIC FORCE
PORTRAIT

More than a muse to husband Rick Owens, Michèle Lamy breathes life into their furniture creations. In her Paris-based atelier she talks about how her creativity is fuelled by emotion or seduction and that the designs are all about materials, noble or otherwise.
