Born in a small town in the mid 90s Belgium, Raf Simons was brought forth into a time of antagonism, while the country was in socio-political foment. His mother was a house cleaner, and his father was a night watchman. America’s post-war youth culture had yet to reach inner Europe; hence, in the absence of cultural happenings, Simons spent most of his days at a music shop, immersing himself in Kraftwerk’s works Sonic Youth, Joy Division, and Black Flag. A non-conformist by nature, he often sewed patches of his favorite bands onto his clothes, much to the dismay of his teachers. His father, Jack Simons, lived a life of regimentation, upholding a standard expected of uniform men. Simons’ clothes are a rejection of such, free of any restrictions - silhouettes big or small - depending on the emotions and attitude that they are intended to invoke in the wearer.
