The runway finale of Raf Simons
The runway finale of Raf Simons

 

Speaking of outside the show, Raf Simons’ scribbled pieces from last season were also spotted on the streets of Paris that January. This fall/winter, his collection was highly anticipated following his departure from Dior to focus on his own artistic pursuits and menswear line. Titled “Nightmares and Dreams,” the collection was presented in an almost theatrical way. Instead of the usual blasts of music, the soundtrack to the show incorporated a series of narratives composed by director David Lynch. The models then sauntered on the runway in oversized silhouettes, clad in pieces with frayed edges, as if they had been worn for quite some time. Both the soundtrack and the clothes successfully evoked memories and provoked bouts of nostalgia. This is, of course, exactly the kind of work that the Belgian designer is known for.
