And so the burnt orange trend continues, however Raf Simmons defiantly hasn’t followed the crowd with in his most recent collection.
Channelling a painter, Simmons used lots of acid wash shirts and trousers which had a splashed paint effects; a creative twist for the collection.
The collection is like the fashion version of copy and paste, representing the modern developments between art and technology. A shark would be imprinted on a t-shirt and a hand would be put on another. Some of the early t-shirts and jumpers almost look reminiscent of Katie Earys work.
There really was no colour pallet for the collection as Simmons has gone from burnt oranges to blacks to yellows to turquoise and pinks. Experimental, yet successful.
The soundtrack to the show was Pink Floyds ‘the dark side of the moon’ Raf Simmons reason for this was that he wants “nothing connected to anything that is now”. He certainly did that.
