Raf Simons Men's RTW Fall 2010 / PFW-Day03

Since his earliest days in fashion, Simons has set out to bring youthful dynamism to tailoring. He also continues to experiment with methods of conforming clothes to the body, and this season he borrowed tools from activewear: Velcro and snaps.

To begin, Velcro side tabs gathered classic suits at the waist, or else the strips were applied longitudinally so the fabric folded neatly on to itself and held in place. Swatches of Velcro, at least the non-snagging side of it, served as decorative appliqués as well.

Like racing stripes, the contrast-hued strips imbued this collection with terrific vibrancy. Alternatively, strategically placed snaps on blazers added a futuristic sheen.
