Raf Simons produced not only a show but a piece of artwork. Taking place in the former Crédit Lyonnais building, models entered the fray almost robotic via the escalators. This was a collection that had all of Raf Simons’ famous attributes celebrating youth. Plaids were in heavy rotation in many different colours, the models’ hair patent and slick added to the uniformity of the collection. Sleeveless shirts in bright red, orange and blue made apprearances as this collection had just about everything. This was a great show and yet another success for Raf Simons.
