Photographer David Sims and designer Raf Simons first came together to work on an ambitious fashion photography book called Isolated Heroes, a collection of portraits taken in the summer of 1999 of non-professional models street-cast by Raf Simons himself. Each figure was garbed with the designer’s Spring/Summer 2000 collection and is depicted with the transfixed gaze hallmark to David Sims’ portraits. Drawing images from this photo series, the two icons have unveiled a collaborative collection of the same name. The range offers a selection of monochromatic pieces, including parkas, sweaters and bags. Each item is emblazoned with a large-scale black and white profile from the original book. The David Sims x Raf Simons “Isolated Heroes” collection is available now at select retailers such as colette.
