"To The Archives No Longer Relevant" Raf Simons Shirt from FW15. This is the 20th season for Raf Simons and he initially sought to pay a tribute to his revered past collections but he and his team simply didn't feel that it was "relevant" to do anything old, instead opted to keep doing something new. This however was an homage to his influences Helmut Lang and Maison Margiela. Fits a little big, material is thin but not transparent as picture suggests (we're getting to fix the lighting issues), soft. High quality silk print on bank with "RS" signature logo patch sewn on back.
9/10 Condition. Sz S (Fits a little bigger)
Takahiro Miyashita "The Soloist" Long Sleeved Henley. The Soloist is the follow up to Takahiro Miyashita's "Number (N)ine" which focused on a more rugged folk, conceptual look putting form over message of N(N) (until very recently). This henley is from the earlier works featuring crude, but beautifuly crafted, designs of multi-material pieces and distressed/worn-in details. Silk and Cotton blend giving the top a nice sheen. The material is intentionally pilled, asymmetrical and loosely fitting. Phantom button up. Low hanging pits with 3/4 sleeves for an exaggerated bottom heavy silhouette.
8/10 Condition. Size S but can fit up to a slim M
Off white "Half Time" War is Hell Tee. FW15
Size M, Fits Boxy and oversized
Condition 9/10. Barely worn, soft to touch. Only issue is a manufacturer snag that has been repaired on the right chest, completely unnoticeable.
