Milan Fashion Week: Raf Simons Fall 2009

As I promised in my earlier post, here is another top selection from Milan Fashion Week, Raf Simons.

Simons brilliantly played off the notion by manipulating unlikely face-offs between the conventional and the not-so: a camel coat had gray flannel lapels, a gray flannel jacket had camel sleeves. A knit shrug was laid over a suit. The remnants of a techno-fabric jacket made another.

But the sharpest juxtapositions were neoprene like shrugs in hot pink or bright blue hauled over flannel or pinstripes to create the impression of an alien other.
