cover

Today is 47th birthday of Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons. As we look back on his 20 years of brand development – where he reshaped the landscape of menswear – his minimalist years at Jil Sander and his ongoing work at Dior we are digging deeper into his archives to find rather hidden parts of his work which defined contemporary aesthetics. Today marks the beginning of our Raf Simons week.

 

Monday – we are showcasing 2 pieces of his “History of my World” AW05 collection and one of the rarest pieces – a parachute jacket from his “Consumed” SS03 collection which is largely heralded as one of Raf’s best, as well as one of the most influential in terms of what we accept as fashion’s current mix between street wear and high-fashion. We also show you where to find those rare pieces on eBay.
