NOT A BOOK. A SCARF. YOU CAN STILL READ IT THOUGH. PRODUCED UNDER THE RAF SIMONS LIMITED EDITION
LABEL IN 2001 AS PART OF
THE RIOT, RIOT, RIOT COLLECTION IT IS AN
ARCHIVE PIECE OF ARCHIVE REFERENCE. POSTMODERN, YES. WARM AGAINST THE
CHILL WIND, THAT TOO.
We just love it. That is always the best reason. This week's superbook is a scarf. Made under the Raf Simons Limited edition label the scarf was produced for the 2001 Riot, Riot, Riot collection. It was sold in Raf's own space within Dover Street Market in London around 2004.
Wear your references. In adddition to the above, the patches include Bauhaus at Brixton Academy, Apocalypse Now and Richey Manic (whose disappearance inspired the collection).
The scarf has never been worn. Fifteen years old and it is in as new condition. Size is 48 inches by 40 inches. Big. Add to your collection, start your own archive, wear it to the Grammy's next week...
BELONGS IN THE FUTURE. SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO!
Back to books. There is one inside this gatefold record sleeve. The Raf Simons spring sumer 1997 lookbook for the Teenage Summercamp collection.
Pin yourself up. Raf's model is his muse is his customer is his inspiration. All the same single projection of an image.
Inside the sleeve, a book. Shot by Ronald Stoops. Inspired perhaps by Joseph Szabo, this is as close as fashion photography gets to the real thing. It almost is the real thing. Raf shoots in the late nineties are now the reference.
Right to left. The way the wind blows. Great shape and composition. The lookbook is full of such images. See morehere. Hit the button below to buy.
