To celebrate the 10th anniversary of their ongoing collaboration, Raf Simons and Fred Perry are releasing archive pieces at secret locations around the world. The locations are chosen in recognition of new and emerging subcultures that are emerging in the cities.

The 100 archive pieces will be left in vacuum-sealed packaging over the next six weeks — leading up to the launch of Raf Simons’ Fall/Winter 2018 collaboration with Fred Perry on August 20 — by photographers Olya Oleinic and Kyle Weeks. The two photographers are also documenting youth culture in these cities. So far, pieces have been released in Athens, with more cities to be announced via the Raf Simons x Fred Perry website.
