School Disco – “There was absurd, over-the-top hype before it even began.”

by Lauren Cochrane

Although the Raf Simons label was originally launched in autumn/winter 1995, his growing number of fans were treated to five successive seasons of fairly low-key video presentations before the designer finally felt the time was right to put his vision on the runway.

However, he did manage to pull himself out of his thoughts to mull over the question that was often asked to him whenever he saw his mother again.
