Raf Simons 2010 Fall/Winter Menswear Film by Pierre Debusscere

The idea of fragmentation was really important in this collection – psychologically for the Raf Simons man, and literally in the garments. Several garments were physically fragmented so that they can be worn as whole, traditional pieces or as individual parts of one piece. For example, the trench was divided into three parts: a bolero, a bustier and a skirt, although the skirt can only be worn as part of the trench, not on its own. We also wanted to further redefine the tradition of classic tailoring. Using Velcro and press buttons gave another dynamic to the tailoring and suiting – it gave the collection speed. Pierre Debusschere’s film about the collection plays with the twin ideas of speed and fragmentation.
