OUR GREAT AFFLICTION: AN OBSESSION ABOUT RAF SIMONS


Raf Simons made it to another level with his "boys meet girls" SS14 Collection. Simons continued to disrupt menswear, designing new shapes and attidudes, echoing his SS13 collection with the "unisex" long t-shirt as a basic in boys wardrobe! Simons 's label is a boys affair not a grown up matter, giving a interview after his show to DazedDigital : 

" i think it has always been hanging arou nd our brand a bit. It's a brand that pushes fashion forward and that means that automatically there is more experiment to it. Although we are still defined really 100 per cent raf simons men's only, we have women clients, women buying and wearing our clothes which is very exciting for me. i don't feel at this moment in time to want to specifically design something for women because i find it fascinating to see the fact that women want to buy things that they see on men. I think that's also an evolution. I think it goes in two directions and for the rest i can only say it's a very natural way for us to behave. It's not that we over think - it's very natural. We feel it's almost a party mood. we're enjoying it and we show electricity and show energy and, at the same time, show nature.

All the boys were natural tonight.There was nobody who did the hair for them. We showed them as they come so it was very much about the way of dressing, the way of choosing the clothes as a way to express yourself. It was not camouflage in terms of collection and that is what is interesting rigt now. You can just take it or leave it but hopefully take it."





Clothes are not only the department that has been updated. The sneakers, a collaboration with Adidas has been part of the attempt to challenge menswear. The low and high top sneakers are an avant-garde addition to Simons's wardrobe. The idea is not to replace the "velcro " or the "low space" sneakers, but it's more than a new start. The sneakers have a futuristic and edgy touch. They look a bit heavy and  we are not really into this kind of sneakers. It is not the matter here, they will be sold out like most of Simons shoes. We have no doubt!




Simons 's accessories is another matter. We have been experiencing a great affliction! We are obsessed as most people are! It is a well-kown disease! Anybody can confess it right now we will not be confused! The AW13  collaboration with Eastpack is the ultimate must-have! This is not the first time and we hope this is not the last time ! Here is another higher level of sophistication for boys ( and probably girls!). The two stripe silk backpacks are the W.A.R.M. WANTS! As far as we are concerned it is the best bag to go anyway you want. Probably the best bag to carry with us to London and Berlin this summer or on Festivals! Certainly it is an essential accessory!
