Poltergeist Patch Cape
AW2005 "History of My World"


This cape is the amalgamation of all the elements that make “History of My World”, collaged with every single graphic used in the FW05 season. Poltergeist haunted locations and related quotes, Cure Tour dates, John Cage, Robert Smith, Peter De Potter Graphics, lyrics, the reaper herself are littered and patched throughout the cape. The cape’s silhouette is reminiscent of the signature hooded mantle from the late 90’s and early 00’s. A collector’s piece, this cape was most likely made in single digit quantities and hardly ever surfaces into the public.

This patched cape signifies the dusk of Raf’s graphical works as a new chapter opens for the second half of the decade.


Good condition. Please see photos for full evaluation.

He called his show History of My World, but Raf Simons refused to revisit the past with his latest collection. To be more precise, he looked back only as far as last season's epochal offering, which was clearly the jumping-off point for Raf's new century (remember, it's always Year 4 before a decade really kicks into gear). For fall, then, Simons expanded on his poignant, futuristic vocabulary, which embraces a radical new shape. The presentation itself was overlong and repetitive, but it made its point with a baggy-trousered, cropped-jacket silhouette that focused attention on a loose, gathered waistline. Under some of those paper-bag waists, a wide leather corset belt made the point still further, as did a cropped puffer-trench-coat hybrid and a gun- metal double-breasted jacket that looked like a sawed-off trench.
