RAF SIMONS

Plant Crewneck
AW02 “Virginia Creeper”  

 

DESCRIPTION

The ideas presented around Raf’s AW02 collection were set out to explore the relationship between humans and nature. The Virginia Creeper hoodie illustrates just that, being named after a five-leaved ivy plant found across the Americas. Each piece of clothing from this collection went through special chemical treatments. This sweatshirt was dyed several times and treated with an acid wash to create a weathered effect that would corrode it overtime.

COVERAGE

The goal of Raf Simon’s AW2002 collection was to explore the duality of man and nature, illustrated by it’s reference to the pest plant “Virginia Creeper,” which kills other plants around the manmade structures they frequent. When strictly examining the formal nature of the produced garments, one may think the collection was a study on american school uniforms or summer camp attire under the lens of 80s horror flicks… and they would be right. The horror aesthetic was further illustrated by the natural distressing of the silhouettes caused by a chemical treatment that over time eats away at the fabric induced by the wearer’s body heat.
