Who doesn’t love Raf Simons? Even if it takes you a while to come around to him and his designs, I think everyone can agree that he is one of the most talented designers out there at the moment (and of the past 10 years, at least). He can do menswear and womenswear, and his own name brand has an almost cult-like following, being featured on Highsnobiety near daily.
In celebration of his first collection for Calvin Klein, the brand that he now designs for, along with his right-hand man from Dior, Pieter Mulier, I decided to look back at his last ever collection for Jil Sander. This is what I think of when I hear the name Raf Simons and I think his time at Jil Sander was probably better than his time at Dior. Let’s hope his first season at Calvin Klein is a good one!
