      Could the 'Prince' from the recent collection be an Arthurian refernce? There's a white hoody with a print for the 'College Of Avalon' which from what I remember was from the King Arthur Stories. There's a wikipedia article about it from the looks of it but I'm just about to run out of the house so somebody with more time will have to read and report back.

        I went to a raf simons archive event in London a couple of days ago. Have had mixed feelings afterwards. He did have some nice pieces over the years.

              hehe, thanks jogu. And considering I've got a shamelessly large quantity of said 'good shit' in my own archives, I thought sharing some of it within various threads here might be nice. Some could use resurrecting, others, a bit of plumping. I was surprised to see some designer's threads so.. 'threadbare', pardon the pun.

              Added & still adding to Helmut Lang, Rick, and of course, Ann – with images soon to drop in Comme, Chalayan, Ackermann, AFV, Yohji, Dries and Forme, primarily. In other words, stay tuned.

                Those photos are amazing. The one with the Merciful Release tattoo is my favorite.

                  I figure this might be the right place to ask this, can anyone tell me what's the story behind that tag ?

                    Around Spring 2001, Raf was seriously disenchanted with fashion and he decided to quit or at least take a break - in any case, he took a season off. However, he produced a collection of his signature pieces for Louis in Antwerp, which was the first store to carry his line. This is the tag he used. I still have a pair of slim pants from this collection, which I bought at Louis (I would only let them go to a serious Raf aficionado though).

                        Thank you . Certainly makes more sense than what I was told when I got them.

                            Thanks for the unwitting reminder, E. I've some old editorials w/ pieces from that collection. Here's one where the stylist mixed it w/ some old army surplus gear. Totally works.

                              Well, basically each collection had some of its pieces specially produced in very limited numbers for the "archive line", for archival purpose (duh !) or for Raf's personal collection or something like that (the explanation wasn't very clear). I guess it's not that far off..

                              I was also told I could fetch a couple thousand euros for the pants on ebay but I've got my doubts about that
