Fashion brand RAF SIMONS presented its Spring Summer 2023 Collection, that celebrates the energy of dance, and the impact of the body. The collection brings ease, simplicity, and essential form. Tailored blazers and biker jackets are sliced away to tank tops, fine-gauge knit and stocking fabric delineate limbs in a second skin, combination bodysuits streamline and simplify the silhouette. For the season, Raf Simons collaborated with Philippe Vandenberg Estate. The collection features selection of artworks as all-over prints, with a focus on Vandenberg’s text works.
SPRING SUMMER 2023 COLLECTIONS
“Tailoring as a machine for the body, classic fits in wool, sometimes manipulated internally with elastic to flex around the torso. Trousers are minimized to panels of fabric, gestures of clothing, a direct language. Tailored skirts combine with stretch, affecting a rapport with the figure beneath. Corps de ballet, corporeal. Jewelry is fashioned from skeletal hands or vampire fangs, symbols of enjoyment and revelry, reminders of humanity.” – from Raf Simons
