Raf Simons decided to use the style of New York artist Christopher Wool as the inspiration for his Men’s SS 09 collection; he Graffiti words by Leonard Cohen in the courtyard of the educational institution where he staged his latest show. The location was off the hook!!!
Raf sent embroidered tops, with coloured threads trailing like a delicate fringe down the hallway of he institute. His mews were Cohen and Wool, Simons also had in mind Robert Ryman, all of them “artists who dedicate life to the slight evolution of things.”
All that is Raf Simons, keeping it street, clean and well tailored, with the mesh du-rags and flip flop cut out shoes, and the man bag. Accessories for men are the in “It” bags.
That’s hot Backstage Raf Simons
