Raf Simons Takes New York

Already based in New York, having begun his tenure as creative director of Calvin Klein following his Dior stint, Raf Simons has decided to show his fall 2017 eponymous men’s collection in the city, too — a very welcome addition to the official CFDA calendar.

Slated for February 1, 2017, the show will mark the anti-designer’s first stateside outing and the second season in a row that he’ll skip Paris men’s week. The Belgian’s runway show will easily be the highest-profile for the nascent New York men’s week, NYWF:M.

Here’s hoping it’ll be every bit as moody and emotive as his early work. A scrapbook of our fave looks…
