Raf Simons 2011 Fall/Winter

By Laura on August 19th, 2011

RAF SIMONS AW11 FITTING from RAFSIMONS.COM on Vimeo.

Raf Simons shows off his Fall/Winter 2011 collection through this rather interesting video. The behind the scenes video of a fitting, sees models rotate in a 360 fashion, showing you every detail of each piece.

Although I am not feeling those awful PVC looking trousers, the collection does have some great pieces, consists with the designer’s signature approach of redefining classics through new interpretations.

Menswear: Jill Sander catwalk show SS10

By admin on June 22nd, 2009

Clean, clean, clean. The Jil Sander show featured neat boys with bowl cuts in pale summer colours and dark, sharp suits.

Shoulders are wide, fabrics are sheer and there is only the merest hint of print in a few drawn-on pieces. Raf Simons focused on details, but they were never bitty, things like pockets visible through shirts, short shorts and racer back singlets all added definition to this simple collection.

Best worn: on a blustery northern French beach in Spring.

Farfetch Private Sale

farfetch private sale raf simons b store missoni.jpg

Farfetch, the website that brings together the best from designer boutiques around Europe, is having a private sale. Admittedly there isn’t much for a credit crunch budget, but there are plenty of quality investment pieces with up to a 40% discount.

The Missoni sweater should by rights, be an eyesore, but because it’s Missoni it just works. Use as a cosy beach cover-up over some tailored grey shorts. The limited edition design means that each jumper will be different which is an added bonus. Raf Simons‘ transparent grey aviators are totally modern, whilst retaining the classic shape. If you can manage not to sit on them these will last you a long time. Fummel & Kram‘s tapeman scarf is colourful and playful, but the taupe fabric will go with a multitude of summer colours. Finally, brogues are firmly positioned as a wardrobe staple once more, and B Store’s pair scream summer.

Wishlist: Claude Grant Cropped Trousers from Oak

By Will Reid on April 24th, 2009

Picture 2.pngFor the British, summer is a time of seaside, (dubious) sun and 99p ice creams. It can be hard to find the perfect sun ‘n’ sea outfit and I won’t bore you with details of the economy but, basically, we should all be investing in classic investment fashion pieces. Could there be anything more perfect than these cropped trousers in a brilliant azure blue. At $798 (£542,) they might be rather over-priced (okay, very over-priced) but they can be worn in the heat with a basic white tee and Raf Simons gladiator sandals or in the winter with black brogues, a black tee and a grey cardie.

The one problem? They are only stocked up to a size 4 so, as if the beach wasn’t enough in itself, you now have even more reason to drag yourself to the gym after work!

By admin on April 2nd, 2009

Another day, another Raf Simons collaboration, this time with Doc Martens. We can’t wait till this one hits the stores, the metallic tones work so well with the hardwearing DM leather and I’m sure they’ll look even better with wear. Our favourite piece is the two-tone boot, pewter and gold never looked so good. Stick around to see our previews from all the press days tomorrow, including Billionaire Boys Club, Ermenegildo Zegna and more.

We also love the pointed shoes underneath. So chunky! So lace-y! So buckle-y!

Raf Simons X Fred Perry loafers at Daniel Jenkins

Raf Simons X Fred Perry loafers.jpg

Daniel at Daniel Jenkins (obvs) informs me that these Raf Simons X Fred Perry loafers are selling out… Fast!

Little wonder, the intense monochrome colour reminds me of Lanvin’s enamel jewellery. The uniform colour is just what you need to give an outfit some impact, so if you’ve cash to spend on a deck shoe with a difference they’re £155 on the site.

Part one of our Paris Menswear show round up, and both Hermés and Raf Simons wowed but for different reasons, check after the jump to see a short clip of the Raf Simons vid complete with rotating mirrors and you’ll see why the fash pack went mad for this one. Also after the jump is the Dries Van Noten show, a timelessy retro affair with ’40s influenced tailoring which managed to look fresh rather than museum-y. the green baize-y background added to the Hitchcock glacial feel.

Raf Simons X Eastpak at Asos

Click image to enlarge, full product details after the jump

Raf Simons‘ AW colab with Eastpak is one of his most conventional yet but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing worth buying.
The shiny finish looks the best on the duffle bag, which would make a great bag for the weekend or the gym. The creased finish adds a twist to the classic Eastpak shape making a great bag for those who want a bit of fashion with their functionality. The one I’m least sure about is the check with patches, is it just me or does it look a bit Rage Against the Machine fan art?

Outfit Pick: Braving the Blue with Burberry!

By Will Reid on October 10th, 2008

I’m currently sitting in a small room in India with a fan spinning in an attempt to cool me down and a mosquito net blanketing the balcony door. I have to admit it’s pretty hard to imagine wearing trench coats right now. But, I’m a proud Brit and nothing is going to get in the way of my winter-wardrobe appreciation.

This Outfit Pick shows you how to rock a modern, edgy winter look that will have you feeling protected and warm but not boring and hoping no-one spots you in your M&S beanie.

The trench adds a sharp shot of buzzing colour and the t-shirt and boots add an urban gypsy vibe that’s very on-trend. The umbrella…well, that’s just for fun.

See after the jump for full product details!

Love the Look: Jaakko on Hel Looks

By admin on September 22nd, 2008

jaako hel looks love the look.jpg
It’s a simple look but Jaakko’s tonal outfit posted on Hel Looks a few days ago hits the fashion spot. Breaking up the monotony with a patterned scarf is a wise move and he shows that black and brown can be worn together (more about this soon) without incurring the wrath of the fashion gods. He namechecks Raf Simons, A.P.C and Surface to Air in his outfit rundown and on top of that he is rocking a pretty amazing moustache, bravo!

James Franco Does Agyness Deyn in Interview October 2008

By Will Reid on September 22nd, 2008

fashion.jpg

Franco’s cover (left) bears a striking resemblance to Agy Deyn’s Pop editorial of S/S 2007

Oops- I genuinely only just realised that the title of this post could be interpreted pretty freely. Anyway, let’s all just grow up and listen to the explanation.

Basically, after a sell-out premiere issue featuring Kate Moss in a cat-suit, Interview magazine has decided to use James Franco on the cover of their October issue. Photographed by Mikael Jansson, this is a huge step for Franco and after his role as the latest Gucci-guy, he has cemented himself as a fixture on the high-fashion scene. This cover however, reminds me of Agyness Deyn’s editorial in the Spring/Summer 2007 issue of Pop Magazine.

Read on for more pictures and a full editorial review with highlights including Raf Simons, Karl Templer and Ryan McGinley.

Reader request: skinny grey jeans

By admin on September 1st, 2008

As you can probably tell comments are down on Brandish, so when Nick emailed me asking about grey skinny jeans I clapped my hands together in excitement… A clothing hunt!
I went looking all over the internet for some grey skinny jeans with reasonable success. Hopefully there’s something here for you Nick and if anyone else wants me to don my web-hunting gear or just have a chat about clothes send me an email to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.
