Raf Simons (b. 1968)
This jacket features a classic work jacket cut made of a unique nylon material. There are a plethora of functional zippers that exist throughout the garment, most notably on the collar. This piece illustrates Simon’s avant-garde take on conventional outerwear through a trompe-l’oeil-esque mannerism. From a distance the jacket looks completely normal. However, the closer one investigates, the more unorthodox the piece becomes.
