Michèle Lamy (b. Jura France) eludes simple categorisation. She is an entrepreneur and producer, collaborator and performer, wife and business partner to Rick Owens with whom she has built an empire, Owenscorp. Lamy occupies a unique place within culture, enjoying iconic status in both the fashion and art worlds.
On a daily basis, Lamy functions as the producer of the RO furniture collection, working closely with the artisans in the construction process as well as directing the positioning and presentation of the works, including shows at The Musée D’Art Moderne de la ville de Paris and MOCA LA. In 2014 Lamy created ‘LAMYLAND’, an umbrella term for her independent creative projects and endeavours, bringing together all the key elements integral to her practice – experimentation, collaboration, storytelling and creation. In a sense it is a natural progression to her renowned Les Deux Cafe, the LA cabaret spot she founded, curated and ran for many years. LAMYLAND is a cultural movement: often at its core, is an architectural instillation that functions as a communal gathering space for performances, social engagement and contemplation.
