Paris, France – For Spring/Summer 2015 famed Belgian 5 designer Raf Simons is largely inspired by 70’ men’s fashion.The repertoire in this men’s wardrobe includes woollen vests in combination with cotton jerseys. The designer adds a new dimension for coatings coupled directly the above-mentioned.
Still voguish is the duster with exaggerated lapels, but Simons also complements the male wardrobe of sleeveless ones. Certainly, the rare exemplars are coat-vest-likes of various stripes. Some of those are worn with a casual loose, some unzipped or waist belted. The return to grace takes latex mackintoshes and the quite bold styling seems of the apron-like stylized wool overcoat accented with the heady printed transfers.
The inspiration of 1970’s also can be seen in the flared trousers worn with boots with slightly more massive soles. In addition, the designer points out that it’s not the clothes that separate girls from the boys.
At first glance, the collection does not seemingly place a huge amount of attention on details. Evidently, they are seen in the vest’s holes or the ‘torn’ sleeves traces. But on the other hand, this is the exactly what attracts the viewer’s eye to Simon’s perfections.
Raf Simons’s fashion is easy with the cuts and colors, worn more with a little dose of ignorance than buttoned up.
