Set inside a massive, mostly empty warehouse, Raf Simons debuted his Spring-Summer '16 collection in Paris this week. The heavy music provided plenty of energy, while the contrasting silhouettes and proportions gave life to a fairly muted colour palette. Wide trousers, tiny knits, slim pants and oversized coats, often embellished with grommets, retained most of the attention as a couple of hooded models took an unplanned detour along the way.

Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith Spring 2015

—01. Clear Sky.

Words

I can't recall, in my relatively brief experience of the industry, a shoe being released to such acclaim only to be so overdone and over-worn in such a short period of time. It's truly a testament to the modern landscape and how quickly trends are moving today. That said, if any shoe can stand up to the hype and navigate the varying levels of appeal and acceptance, it's the Stan Smith. This spring Raf Simons has again re-coloured the shoe in solid tones, the pale pink and clear sky being the standouts for me personally.

02. Navy/Green.

Words

Adidas' steady rollout of collaborations is only going to increase this year with anticipated releases from Pharrell and Kanye, but the more interesting products come from their work within the fashion industry. Raf Simons has been working with the brand for a number of seasons now and, like it or not, his spring collection includes a selection of solid-coloured and two-tone sandals at a premium price compared to the standard Adilette Slide.

Raf Simons Spring-Summer '15

02. Loopback Cotton-Jersey Sweatshirt.

Words

The first pieces from Raf Simons' latest collection have already begun to hit retailers. Never one to shy away from an interesting graphic treatment, these prints offer a lighter, more playful feel compared to those used in his recent Sterling Ruby collaboration, and I quite like how they sit on the black backdrops.

Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Flower Print Parka

—01. Made in Italy.

Words

The Raf Simons collection with Sterling Ruby has received a lot of press this season, from retailers, publications and celebrities – and for good reason. It's one of the more exciting projects right now, and while many of the products are a bit loud for my taste, there are a few gems in the offering. This olive green cotton parka features a pared down design with a classic graphic treatment on the back, which is enough to set it apart while still being very wearable.
