Consistently innovative and on the cusp of new trends, Raf Simons is at work again. Yet again, Raf Simons manages to distinguish his brand from the mindless clones. His own collection surpasses the collection he put together for Jil Sander. In a sea of clothes that often seemed to heavy for the spring, Raf’s clothes are quite light and offer a unique perspective. The Raf Simons spring 2009 collection includes severe sharp cuts, v-necks, gradients, graphic prints, and broad shoulders. These elements work well together and create a collection that definitely screams Raf, but is anything but tired. A definite highlight would be his new black and white boots. Spring 2009 will not be complete without a pair.
