Raf Simons’ men’s fall 2010 collection is another one of my favourite from the Paris shows. Mr. Simons continued his quest in modernizing the suit. This time he used Velcro and snaps. He also slightly reference Helmut Lang and Jean Paul Gaultier. The traditional coats like trench had a touch of femininity. Their bottoms look like skirts and some of the knitwear tops are so long that it could be mistaken for a dress.
Raf Simons collection perfectly envisioned how a real modernist would interpret traditional menswear items.
