Retrospective look from Raf Simons SS/10 Collection

The first agenda of this season’s Fashion calendar had just been adjourned, there’s a hype of information now coming from Paris Fashion week.

Looking back at a few noteworthy shows, I think Raf Simons made an outstanding collection.  His show focused on bringing a heightened sense of consciousness to the man’s body; producing an array of torso-hugging suits and sleeves drawn up toward the deltoid corners of a man’s physique.  As if to suggest that a toned body may well be a precursor for Fashion to follow suit.  Thus, form is followed by all outer implements which are the clothes clinging only as mere accessories to the body, so to speak.  Raf Simons’  exploration on the man’s form is a glass shattering undertaking in menswear, delineating a similar Modern attitude towards clothing that seems to only exist now in women.
