And I've got a question not sure can u answer it.
I saw some sweater in 02SS collection Sized OS.
Does it mean Over-Size or One-size?
And for some item they seems only have the Size OS as I never see size 46 or 48 for some item like sleeveless sweater in 02SS & those sweater in 02aw 03ss

The first rule of fightclub - OS means one size (but it probably IS oversized ). There is a cool wool knit hoodie in size 46 on Ebay from Raf's earlier days - I would totally snatch that if I were you.

Great thread, Buckwheat

Looking back, I like his collections more and more. I was originally very closed to it, but not anymore. I like what I'm seeing from his new collection, too.

Alright here we go gang. I was searching through his works on internet and I found a list of his collections and images. The following materials are from CFA (contemporary fashion archive) www.contemporaryfashion.net

Let us go back to 1995....

Raf Simons Collection Autumn/Winter 1995/1996

Raf Simons first collection, presented at the Danielli Ghiselli showroom in Milan.

English schoolboys and their uniforms inspired the collection. Characteristics were the very tight silhouette and the classical materials in dark colours (grey, black, navy). The collection was presented with three large black/white pictures of two boys he spotted on the street, and with a promotional video.

too bad no images were provided on this....

Raf Simons Collection Spring/Summer 1996

Second season, shown in a private showroom in Paris.

Illustrated by four life-size colour pictures of some boys and a girl and by a black/ white 8mm video of the same young people, hanging around at home in an atmosphere that is reminiscent of Warhol’s ‘Factory’.

The collection was inspired by David Bowie in the late seventies-early eighties, by Antonioni’s “Blow Up” and by the film “Christiane F”.
The silhouette was again very close to the body. Classic materials were mixed with strong colour accents. Alternation of cheap and chic, classic and trash.

no images on this too....

We Only Come Out at Night Collection Autumn/Winter 1996/1997

Raf organises his first presentation for the press and his clients in a Paris art gallery.

A video was projected on a large white wall, while the kids appearing on screen were walking around in the gallery wearing the same outfits. The video tells a story about 11 rich children all dressed up, who retire to their rooms after a dull cocktail-party in their elderly home. They change into trash outfits and hang around, watch T.V., dance, conjure up ghosts, etc.
In the showroom 8 blown-up close-ups of youngsters who look as if they belong to the ‘Adams family’ were shown together with a photo of a businessman in a very classical outfit and a black motor-helmet on the head. Another picture was a parody of Wednesday Adams sitting in a wicker chair.

Atmosphere of the collection and of the video:
‘The Adams Family’ - kids, Kate Bush, The Cure, 80’s New Wave, Punk.
All the models had dyed black hair and pale faces.
The silhouette: tight, strictly classical shapes with influences of Punk and New Wave.
Materials: English wool mixed with leather.

again no images!!!
