Raf Simons Paris SS16
Whitney Houston once sang about getting so emotional, and how shocking it was what love could do. Well, we love Raf Simons, and Raf loves to get a bit emo. We saw him sobbing his heart out in the Dior and I doc (available on DVD now), while his spring/summer 2016 collection was a veritable ode to emo, in its saggy jeans and tightly-tugged hoods and heavy chain-strung backpacks. And we loved it. Indeed, in true Whitney fashion, we will always love it, because Raf’s riffs are the strongest and most directional in all of fashion land. A lovely note to end the first day of Frenchy homme-wear on.
