menswear collections: raf simons, fall

by Jeremy Danté

incredible use of color was added to the architectural menswear collection, presented by the raf simons label in paris. strong design lines were seen throughout the collection as elongated silhouettes allowed the collection to hold just enough drama for the fall season. with studies of industrial design taken by simons himself, it’s within the DNA of his namesake label to inject forms of structured design into the pieces that are created. since the creation of raf simon menswear in 1995, the aesthetic & influence of structure in design was also adapted to the house of jil sander, which simons creatively directs since 2005. use of wool & knitwear were two large elements seen, as color played the largest role in this boldly chic set of menswear. though simple, the power of the collection is seen in the thoughtful details down to the choice in textiles, as well as strategic placement of words, pockets & shots of color. for simple reasons, i love the collections modern sophistication & clean design.
