Paris Men’s Week: Raf Simons

For fall, Raf Simons might have imagined a future Frankenstein with clothes patched and bolted together with a diverse range of fabrics. By simply replacing suit buttons with disk snaps, he gave his tailoring a streamlined, robotic look. Simons also seems obsessed with a cinched waist, pulling tunic sweaters together for an hourglass silhouette and putting double-skirts on trench coats. Combining three or four seemingly uncoordinated fabrics together for a coat or jacket, Simons made his clothes look complex, functional and almost machine-like, befitting the soundtrack of thumping industrial music.
