Adolescence, subcultural identities, and dissent, Simons’ eponymous label was a coalescence of teenage memories, his obsessions, and beliefs he resonated with. Post-punk culture and underground techno scenes heavily influenced his clothing, as seen by visual references from Joy Division and Manic Street Preachers. Silhouettes for his Spring/Summer 2000 collection titled “Summa Cum Laude”, see style cues borrowed from MENSA students blended with the dress code of Gabber ravers. Prints from Spring/Summer 2002 included texts like “Kollaps”, “We are ready and willing to ignite just born too late” and “Stand! Evasion”, this together with its predecessor collection “Riot Riot Riot”, displayed youth unrest, a discontented generation, meant to reflect their desire for change. Without a doubt, these early collections produced some of the most sought-after and influential pieces from the designer.
