RAF SIMONS ∆ THE PYRAMID

THE PYRAMID bomber jacket... the Raf Simons holy grail

It's from the spring/summer 2000 collection, SUMMA CUM LAUDE, which was inspired both by Mensa students and the gabba subculture. On the runway:

  14. Congratulations, I am really happy for you. That must be a great feeling. About the money- just see it as an investment. Maybe you can sell it for double the price in 5 years. By the way I must thank you. You brought Raf Simons closer to me. I have always thought him a little brother of Martin Margiela. But I am looking properly now and I see more and more things I like about the cut of his formal wear and about the graphic use of colours....and he does a brilliant job for Jill Sander too. OK, I wish you a Happy New Year, Rajmund-The Fashion Pilosopher ( that's my real name by the way- it is polish for Raymond. I am quite european. I was born in Poland, raised in Germany and I have been living in London for the last 13 years).
