Paris Menswear: Raf Simons

In Paris, Raf Simons combined the best of his illustrious past with hints of an exciting future direction at Dior.

The show was a ‘greatest hits’ round-up of Simons’ signature styles – think monochromatic tailoring, bold colour accents and plenty of youthful attitude – but grungy florals and soft pastels added an unexpected androgynous twist. As the show drew to a close, a succession of dark overcoats seemed to suggest a return to a more familiar sobriety – that is, until the models turned their backs to reveal floral, pleated back panels in their wake.

In short A dichotomic show that combined the masculine and the feminine, the past and the future, the teenage and the terribly grown-up – all in one sleek Simons package. Floral panelling could be a more commercial option than an all-over pattern.
