Raf Simons for Adidas Stan Smith

The stand out Stan Smith for a while keeps things practically identical to the original, substituting the perforated Three Stripes with a perforated “R” logo, and sees “RAF SIMONS” embossed towards the heel. By far the orange colourway is the one I be handing over my hard earned cash for. The Raf Simons for adidas Autumn Winter 2014 collection will soon be available at select retailers.

Raf Simons Home by WSJ

WSJ spent some time with designer, Raf Simons, at his home in Antwerp, Belgium. “Designed in 1968—Simons thinks it’s kismet that it’s the year he was born—by a Belgian couple who imported Modernist furniture, the two-story, open-floor-plan apartment is a primer in mid-century Modernism. A longtime collector of mid-century furniture, Simons knew he would buy it the minute he saw the wenge-wood floating staircase, built-in cabinets and floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass windows.” LINK

Jil Sander Spring 11 Collection

Raf Simons dreams in technicolor. Vivid shades like geranium, lyme grass, and daffodil take their inspiration from the smallest details in nature, and look electric against a blackened Florentine sky. Pleated detailing on the back of a techno trench shows the designer’s skill for precise, razor-sharp tailoring. A series of slim-cut suits in black-on-black wool hit just the right beat amid all the screaming brights. Graphic colour-block-printed shirts seem to get their gusto from the hard-edged paintings of Frank Stella, and a black-and-fuchsia striped sweater nods to the punk style of the Mudd Club. Raf’s bold swagger is in full force here.
