The Artist’s Wardrobeby Eyal de Leeuw | 15.01.14
First day of Paris fashion week and Raf Simons is back to be rough, radical and different. Presenting his own brand’s autumn-winter 2014 collection, Simons collaborated (yet again) with American artist Sterling Ruby. Adding to Simons’ strict modernist/activist approach Sterling Ruby brought some great color compositions, stunning collages, patchworks and textual elements. Both ‘fathers’ of this 9 years’ collaborative friendship should be proud of their new creation which has, as Simons told Tim Blanks after the show: “nothing connected to anything that is now”.
