Proper oddity where a small shop buys the whole collection – shoots it themselves instead of using the lookbook and publishes it. It’s more a catalogue than lookbook, and to be honest by looking at it you wouldn’t know that this was one of Simon’s most influential collections, they have really done their own thing and it looks more like a Pierre and Gilles parody than an Raf book. Its good, but not in a way that fits in to the overall Raf narrative.
