Raf Simons took (finally) a pause of his suit and androgyny phase and returned to his roots, the streetwear-sportswear aesthethic. The collection, a “child” as Simons in a funny way named it, is a collaboration of the designer with his friend and artist Sterling Ruby. What was the turning point for the collaboration? Beside they are friends for nine years, they also have the same unfinished, deconstruction/construction mood, used it in their work process.
The collection include trenches, oversize coats, bomber jackets, lightweight parkas and  anoraks with micro camouflage motifs paired with tailored pants and cartoonish-like shoes. Very Raf Simons silhouettes and proportions. The outwear, shirts and some pants were treated like canvas, where the duo put bands of vivid color and tapes with different messages, like father, abus lang (abusive language) and cutout images of planets, strips and bald heads.  There were interesting bags too; black or green leather portfolios decorated with lady hands, with exaggerated painted nails to symbolize consumption, or there were long canvas sacks that reminded a tonsil shape.

With Haider Ackermann, is this definitely my favorite menswear F/W 2014/2015 collection till now; bold, powerful and cool.
