Words and meanings that influenced the RAF SIMONS Autumn/Winter 2021
collection, without hierarchy or intentional sequence. An equilibrium, contrast
between disparate elements, unexpected similarities and parallels, a love for and
loyalty to particular themes, ideas, inspirations. Juxtapositions and contradictions,
with a quiet logic. Fabrications, colours and silhouettes combine notions of couture
with youth culture, a process of elevation and respect. The re-scaling of garments
suggests different form language and new purposes, as does their rematerialisation.
References to history are reassuring: the history of both RAF SIMONS, and of
fashion, a comfort in their familiarities. Suggestions of different worlds colliding in
alien gestures. There is one aesthetic language, but it creates the individual.
The RAF SIMONS Autumn/Winter 2021 show was filmed in the Barenzaal and
joining spaces of the C-mine, Genk. The soundtrack of the show is by Kraftwerk.
