Paris Menswear AW13: Raf Simons

It’s the tangible wrongness on which Raf Simons plays that makes his collections so compelling.

Clashy-clashy, loose fitting and strangely proportioned, at first glance it would be easy to wonder what Simons was on about, his odd aesthetic seemingly going against the menswear trend grain. Roomy, swishy trousers (some satin-finished) and boldly coloured, pointy-collared shirts emerged from tie-necked overcoats, while retro tank knits jostled for attention next to high-buttoned sb and 2db blazers featuring prematurely curving front edges and chunky bars traversing wide lapels. Peculiar, but proper fashion.

In short This collection felt like what will come next - but is the industry ready for Simons’ vision of modernity?
