RETURN OF RAF: LN-CC is paying homage to Raf Simons and resurfaced a selection of around 40 items from the Belgian designer’s archive. The collection includes one-off pieces designed from 1998 to 2008 and will be available for purchase on ln-cc.com ahead of Simons’ fall line arriving in August.
“We’ve not really been in the same space as Raf’s main line for a good few years now, but we obviously have a huge respect and love for his previous works, which we have been collecting since Day One,” said John Skelton, creative director. “I loved the pieces that had been made up using Dior haute couture fabrics which we have bought into also. We thought that a nice way to reintroduce the brand would be through showing a few archive pieces that are close to a lot of people’s hearts but very rarely get seen.”
