Earlier this year Raf Simons teamed up with The Woolmark Company on his Autumn/Winter collection marking the start of a symbiotic relationship. The designer will be working closely with the textile company to source Merino wool. To celebrate the new partnership, Raf Simmons has designed an limited edition “I Love Tokyo” sweater. Of the oversized Merino wool piece, the Belgian visionary notes:
“It felt natural to celebrate our collaboration by designing an exclusive I Love Tokyo wool sweater for Dover Street Market Ginza, a reference to the Autumn/Winter 17/18 New York show and the beginning of our partnership.”
The Raf Simons Tokyo sweater has Woolmark certification and is available at Dover Street Market in Japan. Futhermore, both entities have recently launched separate collaborations worthy of note: FACETASM x The Woolmark Company and Raf Off-White.
