Raf Simons Returns To LN-CC
Next season LN-CC will experience the return of designer Raf Simons for the first time since he stepped down as creative director of Jil Sander. In celebration, the London boutique are releasing some exclusive and interesting past pieces from their Raf Simons archives.
An incredibly influential designer, Simons has developed some intriguing and striking pieces, which often taking elements of design to the extreme for maximum impact.
The archive spans ten years, from 1998-2008, and features almost forty pieces, all of which are somewhat unique as they come from limited editions, catwalk collections and other minimal production runs. Highlights include Simons’ Double Layered Padded Jacket, which features a striking high collar, contrast colouring and a shortened waistline that re-emerges in the Cropped Raglan Jacket, both of which are from 2006.
Following the archive collection, LN-CC is also set to stock Raf Simons’ new collection for autumn/winter 2013. With the designer combining haute couture fabrics from Dior with precision tailoring, it is definitely going to be one to watch out for.
You can shop the Raf Simons archive now exclusively at LN-CC. The new AW13 collection will be available from August.
