Exclusive: Raf Simons on the Internet, Patience, and Fashion’s Serious Fear of Evolution.
The winter 2014/15 issue of German fashion and culture magazine 032c features an in-depth interview with Raf Simons by Pierre Alexandre de Looz. It’s a must-read for fashion geeks and a must-buy for Raf addicts—the limited-edition cover (above) is only available online here. In addition to the candid interview, the issue features a portfolio of the designer’s work spanning from 1995 to 2015, shot by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo. Just in time for tomorrow’s Dior show in Tokyo, where Simons will present his Pre-Fall 2015 collection, here’s an exclusive excerpt from De Looz’s interview (plus one bonus quote that did not make it to print) and a slideshow of looks from the retrospective.
