Item description for Raf Simons by Marc Foxx, Jo-Ann Furniss, Ashley Heath, Ralf Hutter, Terry Jones, Mark Leckey, Simon Price & Raf Simons...

Belgian fashion designer Raf Simons' clothes are both inspired by and designed for confident male outsiders. His references to youth movements (like punk, goth, and mod) are not meant to be retro; instead Simons tries to translate their energy and determination into modern statements about mental independence. Yet, although they are impeccably cut and created with love and care, clothes are not at the core of Simons' universe. More important to this cult stylist are attitudes, moods, and statements. Music, art, performance, images, and words have each been a starting point for his designs, and, in an attempt to examine today's male psyche Simons takes his inspiration from the rebellion of past and present youth cultures, blending these notions with tradition and roots. This book--published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Simons's work--presents both a wide range of the intellectual and creative aspects of the designer's work that have sealed his position at the top of fashion's roster. I don't want to show clothes, I want to show my attitude, my past, present, and future. I use memories and future visions and try to place them in today's world. --Raf Simons Edited by Peter De Potter. Texts by Francesco Bonami, Marc Foxx, Maria Luisa Frisa, Jo-Ann Furniss, Ashley Heath, Ralf Hutter, Terry Jones, Mark Leckey, Simon Price and Collier Schorr. Hardcover, 8 x 10 in./128 pgs / 100 color.

Reviews - What do customers think about Raf Simons?

Raf Simons Delux  Jul 9, 2006
Well, how about that title?
Anyway if you're into Raf and what he does and stands for then you're in for a treat. If not, you're missing out. This is a great book for a fans and those new to Raf's world alike.
A mystery reduxed  Dec 14, 2005
"Redux" extends Raf Simons' idea that fashion is more than clothes and celebrities. The book reveals Simons' social background, social isolation, social intimacy with his designers/models, and a blurry vision of the future.

Most importantly, the book doesn't reveal too much information on Mr Simons and is presented in such a way which seems unfinished but actually avoids pretensiousness.

The mystery is reduced but not revealed. Recommended
