  1. Favourite pieces have got to be the astrakan coats (LOVE!), gradient sweater and t-shirt, and the camo coat from the 1995 collection. The hair hood is too weird for me, and I would have to keep brushing it out of my face frustratedly if I wore it! Glad I could finally see the intricacies of this collection, Now Fashion made it all look a little bland. Where can you get the biggest selection of Raf Simons in London?

  2. well, you'd like ANYTHING raf simons sent down the runway. don't think there's any denying that. i wasn't a huge fan of this collection. i miss the snakeskin and neoprene collections he did a couple years ago. nowadays though, i prefer what he does for jil sander rather than his own label

  3. The 1995 collection looks great. How does that collection feel, in terms of quality, compared to the mainline? And where are the pieces produced?

  4. I know some of the 1995 pieces are made in Italy (outerwear, knits) , but I'm not sure if 100% of them are. The quality feels very similar to the mainline though, and the price points aren't much lower.. it's more of a "capsule collection" than a diffusion range (like Raf by Raf Simons)

  5. Love the blazer and short combo they look very fresh and youthful every time I've seen them together.

  6. I love the 1995 line more than the Raf Simons line for this season. Having said that, I love the "R" shirt (not the oversize one), the dip-dyed sweaters and the hairs.

  8. Ack so jealous you got to go! One day... I WILLbe getting the dip-dyed sweaters and t-shirts once they're out. I'd love a double breasted jacket too but that's going to be way out of my price range.
