Raf Simons Gets Artsy for His Spring Menswear Collection
Last night, for his eponymous menswear show, Raf Simons sent the fashion set to the airport. Sort of. The designer showed his Spring 2014 collection at the Gagosian Gallery, which is housed in an old hanger inside Le Bourget Airport, just north of Paris. Models walked among giant Alexander Calder mobiles and wooden Jean Prouvé structures, the perfect backdrop for a spectacular collection based on a new, looser silhouette and graphic Pop Art prints. Part of that new silhouette included a skort hybrid jumpsuit--a pretty daring offering for men--but it worked.
