Calling all Raf Simons devotees. Fancy a flight to Antwerp?
The designer is hosting an archive and sample sale this week, in the city where he launched his eponymous line in 1995. Talk about a homecoming.
There will be apparel, shoes, accessories and fabrics up for grabs, and though the details don’t give away the mark downs, you can expect pieces from his SS13–SS16 collections as well as select pieces from the archive. And what an archive that is. From the skinny fit suits worn by ‘real’ boys in those early shows to the iconic cut and paste anoraks of his collaboration with Hacienda legend Peter Saville, Simons’ channeling of youth codes and creative subcultures has resulted in some seriously iconic moments – and pieces.
If you’re a fan and a local, lucky you. If not, get on Skyscanner and sort yourself out.
Raf Simons’s archive and stock sale will run from Wednesday 10th May to Saturday 13th May at Leopoldstraat 53, B-2000, Antwerp, Belgium
