One of menswear’s most respected designers and certainly the biggest name at NYFW:M, Raf Simons staged his Blade Runner-esque runway show Tuesday night under a bridge in the heart of Chinatown. Highsnobiety has an excellent review digging into the details of what the show meant in the scope of Simons’s work and fashion in general.
For our part, we’ll say that while we respect CFDA CEO Steven Kolb’s distinction between art and commerce, money is the last thing on our minds after soaking up Simons’s creativity. Long live the artist.
Simons, for the uninitiated, is the creative director of Calvin Klein, and the designer of his namesake brand, which has drawn longstanding inspiration from the music and artwork of Joy Division, New Order, and Peter Saville—the designer with whom Simons also recently redesigned the Calvin Klein logo.
