Raf Simons’ latest collection was shown in a BDSM-laden warehouse on the outskirts of Paris. His mission was simple: Bring couture grade tailoring and fabric to menswear. After the show, Simons was quoted saying ““We need it! We need a new outline. I know I was part of it myself, but too many hoodies with prints! You know, something needs to shift.”
References to New Wave and Punk culture shone through, with bright pops of color juxtaposed with punk-inspired graphics and details; each of which is subtle and suggestive. As you observe the collection, you can see a bevy of piercings, safety pins, and fetish gear.
