A Look Into Raf's Archive

Raf Simons Autumn/Winter 2005 Double-Breasted Coat 
Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2006 Perforated Hoodie
Raf Simons is a diamond in the rough, being trained in industrial design rather than fashion, but that had no impact on his rise to the top of the fashion world. Once being the Creative Director for the minimal queens label, Jil Sander, and now directing Christian Dior's Haute Couture and Ready to Wear, and of course his own label, his ability to warp the silhouette of both men and women is unsurpassed. A look into what he has designed in the past and its relevance today is fascinating - the skinny trouser, double breasted coat and androgynous pieces a prevalent trend amongst the fashion conscious today. His influence on fashion often goes unnoticed, but it is clear to see the trickling down of his panelled shirting, sports luxe pieces, and crisp leather sneakers throughout the crowds. His return to the luxury fashion retailer, LN-CC, is now being celebrated with an insight into the archives of his bewildering designs.
