AW03 “Closer” Puffer Down Moto Jacket
Raf Simons AW03 “Closer” Puffer Down Moto Jacket in a dark navy. Simons’s “Closer” touches base with his roots to music, especially with Joy Division and New Order, with Raf’s Peter Saville admiration spearheading the entire collection. Taken from the Mode Museum in Antwerp:
“This season, Raf Simons was granted full access to the archives of Peter Saville. Raf Simons made a personal selection of Saville-designed works (some of them previously unseen) to integrate them into his collection. As a long-time admirer of Peter Saville, Raf Simons considers this a great honour, and therefore dedicates his collection to the man who put an unique spin on music culture. The collection itself focuses on traditional styles and fabrics, augmented by a mod influence. Linked to the aesthetics of Peter Saville, there are also touches of early Russian Constructivism, Bauhaus and vintage British looks. At the same time, the collection reflects on the process of growing up and (re)considering adulthood, citing references to childhood dress codes, formal business looks and ghetto rebellion.”
