22 Jun Raf Simons is Layering Men in Oversized Satin Coats and We are in Love
We are talking larger than life sized brightly coloured satin coats! Yes, you read right. Raf Simons collection for Spring 19 men’s wear is masterfully crafted to reflect the state of mind of the creative direction of the brand, which according to the designer is to put tailoring for men including for the new gen back at the top and in doing so push for new ways of creating them. Change is desperately needed in his view- there has to be a paradigm shift and shifting in really achieved by making mens’s outer wear in Paris couture women’s satin and clashing them with a New York wave club influences. “I was thinking of Yves Saint Laurent, when he was doing his incredible color combinations,” Simons said while speaking with Vogue magazine “Everything except the jersey and a couple of menswear suits was made from duchesse satin.” Working with satin requires a lot of attention and a precision that is well on the money. RAF Simon’ s has masterfully done this and we are pleased with his magnificent handiwork.
