Raf Simons will present a co-ed collection on 23 October 2020, the first time the Belgian designer has shown womenswear under his namesake brand. The label has presented solely menswear since its 1995 debut, establishing an androgynous aesthetic rooted in Simons' own private obsessions with youth culture. Having previously stood at the helm of womenswear at Jil Sander, Dior and Calvin Klein, later this month Simons is also set to make his debut at Prada, as co-creative director of men's and women's alongside Miuccia Prada.
The new Raf Simons collections will be available to buy via a virtual showroom, however the format for the off-schedule show is yet to be announced. One thing is certain: the designer's die hard fans will be following closely as womenswear is added to the mix and the Raf Simons world expands.
