Raf Simons is officially the man to watch this year. The former Jil Sander designer is not only working on his first collection for Dior, but he’s also set to revive his collaboration with the classic tennis brand Fred Perry next month at Paris Men’s Fashion Week.
Simons worked with the label from 2008 until 2011 before taking a short break and his comeback collection is rumoured to include 28 colourful pieces that channel the iconic label’s roots with touches of signature Simons. Above, a sneak peek of the new Raf Simons for Fred Perry collection and below, one of my favourite looks from Simons while he was at Jil Sander from the spring 2011 collection.
And speaking of Jil Sander, can I just say how sad I am she’s no longer designing for Uniqlo. Very sad.
