Like what the title states. Discuss past or present collection from your favorite designer.
I'll start it off with Raf Simons A/W 2002. Thoughts? Also, what do you all think his best collection was?
You picked the most "meme" collection of raf. Like literally EVERYONE says 02 was the best. It's no doubt his best collection but cmon man how are you going to start a thread off with that? It's soooo unoriginal
1995-2000 - youth culture, music culture, tribes, angst, earlier focus on uniforms and youth attire, later focus on sharp tailoring and dark silhouettes.
HIGHLIGHTS - How to Talk to Your Teen, Radioactivity, Confusion
2001-2004 - youth protest and rebellion, larger and baggier silhouettes, layering, iconic cultural imagery, sinister edge, subversion
HIGHLIGHTS - Woe Onto Those…, Consumed, Closer
2004-2008 - modern tailoring, futurism, minimalism, heavy exploration of textures and fabrics (neoprene, metallics, perforated, sheer, hessian blends, leathers, etc.)
HIGHLIGHTS - Waves, History of my World, Icarus Surgit, SS08
2009-2011 - absolute trash
HIGHLIGHTS - n/a
2012-present - heavy use of graphics/patterns/motifs, androgyny, pop art, sneakers, slim tailoring, collaborative
HIGHLIGHTS - SS13, FW14, SS15
/fa/ only learns about a handful of designers someone elses (probably) on tumblr told them was cool
just like "old bands"
some 14 year old "hot girl" thinks kurt cobain was hot so ever teen in the country suddenly is super into nirvanna to buying re-issued "vintage tees"
kanye west cashing in on a bunch of fuckwits who never wear real fashion/were never part of the real target market
keep posting on the internet about how you love rick's collection when you've never been to a retailer and purchased the product that was being presented.
like a bunch of fuccbois talking about movie trailers and talking about how much they liked the adverts /memorize every detail of the trailer
but never watching the movie becuase they an't afford the $20 for a ticket
the fact that its the 'gateway' vintage raf doesnt detract from the show itself, its easily one of his best.
I wrote an essay on this collection last semester and made hood like in the picture, it was fun
my fav collection is forever ss13 visvim tho, im gonna make this robe some day.
fw05 and fw06 are objectively the best raf collections.
Does anybody know the name of this model? She was in one of Rafs earlier collections
