Nomad recently produced an online editorial highlighting their latest spring deliveries, including pieces from Comme des Garçons, Engineered Garments, Common Projects, Adidas x Raf Simons, Nomad and OAMC, among others. The story was shot by Paolo Azarraga with creative direction and styling by Jesar Gabino and Richard Autio.

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.

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

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.

With the Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby collection hitting retailers for fall, I took the opportunity to look back at this interview from 032c's 20th issue. The article revolves around Ruby's work at the time and touches on his collaboration with Simons on the brand's Tokyo flagship in 2005. With an approximate reading time of 21 minutes, it's worth a look for some deeper insights into the artist's outlook and approach to his various works.
