Raf Simons closes eponymous label after 27 years of enriching fashion

Memory Wear: 1995-2022. On Monday evening the Belgian designer Raf Simons surprised the fashion industry by announcing through Instagram that he would close his eponymous brand. The statement also announced that the Spring/Summer 2023 “‘Corps, Coda” collection presented during London’s Frieze art fair last October 13 will be the brand’s very last.

“I lack the words to share how proud I am of all that we have achieved. I am grateful for the incredible support from my team, from my collaborators, from the press and buyers, from my friends and family, and from our devoted fans and loyal followers.”

The Instagram post remains the only official statement, according to Simon’s PR via Vogue.

Simons is regarded as one of the most iconic designers of modern fashion, being an essential name in the vocabulary of every fashion lover. His career includes being the creative director at Jil Sander (2005-2012), Christian Dior (2012-2015), Calvin Klein (2016-2018), and Prada (2020-present), where he is currently co-creative director alongside Miuccia Prada.

The next thing we can expect from the Belgian designer will be his menswear collection for Prada next January in Milan.

While we are waiting for more official information on the move, Raf Simons’ History Of My World site still has some garments and accessories for sale, including the Re-edition of the New York hoodie from the Autumn/Winter 2001 Riot, Riot, Riot collection, as well as some accessories such as the Autumn/Winter 2021 skeleton bracelets and earrings, and Stockmans and Simons reworked Expression bowl set.
