Memory and the tender effect of past as the aim Raf Simons wanted to point to for his last night Spring/Summer 2015 show. He recalled his personal history and created a touching personal and emotional collection; you could literally feel the electricity and the shadows at the same, even if actually he chose not to include lighting inside the venue, but just red and green raving shades that combined together re-created the white light of seventies horror films. He also went for a not seating policy, people were standing and at the same level, no hierarchy at all. Best came with the models, wet hair and slight long blonde extensions on the forehead, as just a club night can provoke, dressed up in garments with back and front covered with nostalgic patches from Raf Simons’s adolescence: old family images of his parents courting, roll coaster, Hokusai prints, shark, astronaut and also an old passport photo: “Like moodboards you’d pin your favorite images to”. Youth and adulthood meshed up together in a pretty autobiographic but not at all languid collection, innovative in its truly clearness.
