RAF SIMONS AND STERLING RUBY

SIXTEEN JANUARY, TWO THOUSAND AND FOURTEEN

One image from an excitingly strange and radical collection that was shown last night in Paris; a collaboration between Belgian designer RAF SIMONS and American artist STERLING RUBY. From left to right: part of a red, white and blue decor prop, a gigantic off-white shoe, super tight purple tie-dye trousers and an oblong green and yellow tie-dye bag. Facebook  Twitter


COMMENTS
  1. Thomas:

    Thank you but no, this does not match my ideal of masuline elegance – not to mention couture de daily grind.

  2. Ralph:

    Thomas, you are wrong. This was the most exciting show in years.

  3. David:

    Thankfully Raf Simons challenges our outdated views on masculinity over and over again in his shows. I thought this was an excellent showing for these two artists. Very radical with some beautiful references also to his earlier shows.

  4. Pünktchen:

    I thought is was reaallly interesting. Also i liked that both stepped out and hugged each other.

  5. Dickie:

    Well, thank God for this! Truly fabulous.

  6. R:

    this was one of the best shows i have seen in my entire 28 years living. nowadays you see a lot of the same things but in a different way each time and each season, they try to push it a bit further maybe a lil to a different direction. But this collection is beyond.. I would call it an intelligent collection concerning all design techniques. This makes me wanna be even more man…ugh. I am so jealous of all men.

  7. Luis:

    For me the show was a little bit boring. He’s turn menswear in couture wear in these days , a good point.

SPRING & SUMMER 2014

What a return! The unmistakable form of Mr. BORIS BECKER, as photographed by his compatriot JUERGEN TELLER, graces the cover of this 19th edition of Fantastic Man – the issue for Spring & Summer 2014. Part of the accompanying interview takes place at tennis legend BORIS’ London home, in the familiar district of WIMBLEDON. Where else, after all, would a six-time GRAND SLAM singles champion choose to live and work? Elsewhere in the issue, a quartet of ELITE MENSWEAR designers – Mr. TOM FORD, Mr. STEFANO PILATI, Mr. ALESSANDRO SARTORI and Mr. BRENDAN MULLANE – are interviewed and photographed as part of unprecedented investigation into the LOFTIEST and most lucrative echelons of the fashion business. The magnificent archive and working practices of the mononymous SNOWDON are discussed at home with the society portraitist. Plus, what is the humble DRY CLEANER actually doing with the garments you hold most dear, why do airline cabin crew particularly adore the celebrated newshound Mr. RICHARD QUEST, and how does one get involved in the fabulous vintological craze that is HYPERDECANTATION? These questions and more are answered in the brilliant new Fantastic Man. Order now
