ATARAXIA, EQUANIMITY, DICHOTOMY, SYNCHRONICITY, ALLEGIANCE, DEVOTION. Words and their meanings is what inspired Raf Simons Fall Winter 2021.22 collection


Followed by the soundtrack by pioneers of electronic music, Kraftwerk, the show was filmed in the Barenzaal and joining spaces of the C -mine in Genk, suggesting the different worlds colliding in alien gestures. ”Their music shaped me, and my work – it is electronic and technological, yet it always has, at its heart, a humanity.” – said Simons.

The collection is about things I love – things I have always loved, that are always there in every collection, in the processes behind it, and the clothes. There are references to music, to fashion, to movies – and visual references to our own collections, our history – but all abstracted, fragmented, examined anew. It is a mix of different ideas: sophistication, maturity, luxuriousness with ease, youth, utility and punk. About how ideas that are unconnected can come together and find a synergy, a calm. Oversize is part of our make-up, and here it creates a new language where garments can serve different purposes, translating across between men’s and women’s.

Fabrications, colours and silhouettes combine notions of couture with youth culture, a process of elevation and respect, juxtapositions and contradictions, all with a quiet logic.

Unexpected similarities and parallels is what define this collection, but also a love and loyalty to particular themes, ideas, inspirations.

The re-scaling of garments suggests different form language and new purposes, as does their rematerialisation.
