David Sims X Raf Simons S/S '16 Collection
When photographer David Sims and designer Raf Simons combined their talents for the first time, they worked on a ambitious fashion photography book called Isolated Heroes, a collection of portraits taken in the summer of ’99. At the time Rad Simons selected non-professional street-cast of models. . Each figure was garbed with the designer’s Spring/Summer 2000 collection and is depicted with the transfixed gaze hallmark to David Sims’ portraits. Drawing images from this photo series, the two icons have unveiled a collaborative collection of the same name. The range offers a selection of monochromatic pieces, including parkas, sweaters and bags. Each item in this collection is emblazoned with a large black and white portrait from the original Isolated Heroes book.
