Raf Simons is the current sovereign of Paris menswear. His collections are regarded as the pinnacle of new ideas for contemporary fashion and his directions are closely examined. This season was Simons' 15th in business and again he presented new solutions for the season ahead. White was the main message as were narrow elongated silhouettes. Oversized industrial zippers were a key detail and they were conceived in orange, pink and green. Elegant flared trousers were a new experiment for Simons and offered a new proposal for tailoring. Clinical cutting allowed the back of garments to open and suggested Simons was shifting the focus of his garments. Sleevless minimal tops will translate effectively to the market as will Simons' simple graphic silhouettes. This season was a triumph for Simons, who effectively managed to fuse refined elegance with radical ideas. He remains at the forefront of menswear design and confirms his position as one of most the respected innovators working today.
