Thread: Raf Simons

    It wouldīve been "ripping off" if Raf had imitated Sterling’s paintings or emulated them without telling him. He used the artwork on different media, itīs more like a remix. So of course it’s relevant if they talked about it/made a deal whatsoever.

    It makes it harder for people to understand what you want to say if you use a word but mean something different.

    They've known each other for a while, now. Sterling even designed one or store for Raf in Japan, almost ten years ago.

    Are there any pictures of his early shows available online or in a book? I'd especially like to take a look at A/W 98-99, and 240p on Youtube doesn't do it justice...

    Yes; the runway pictures only go back to S/S 10 and I couldn't find proper runway pictures in the archive section, it just seems to be a very limited collection of old pics which were for the most part already posted in this thread!

    There isn't much to begin with, I think.

    That would be almonds, not diamonds :)

    Yeah, I'd be concerned about for how long though (re: Firstview). I had to update some of those links since I first put that list together. It just goes to show that there's no permanence online and relying on things always being there isn't a good idea. (Some enterprising individual should mirror them)

    We've already seen it happen with changes to the Raf website where older runway shows were removed. Now we just have a few uploads to Youtube of Nth generation transcoded messes, slowly degrading further and further with each takedown/replacement. I can't even track down the real video of SS 2002, no doubt Raf's most iconic runway show. I even tried to get in touch with Robbie Snelders about getting my hands on archive material so I could make it available, but he never responded.

    Thanks so much naturalalmonds! I've downloaded all the videos an I'm working on gathering pictures right now. As for SS 2002 the best video I've seen is here, although there is some obnoxious editing. Also, there's currently an SS 2000 vhs on eBay that someone here should buy and post if I don't.

    That's the rumor. Would be amazing to have Raf in New York!

    Fighting hard with myself to not read this now and wait for the print erosion this coming weekend.
