Spring Summer 2002 PosterRaf Simons
Rare double sided promotional poster for Raf Simons Spring 2002: “Woe Unto Those Who Spit on the Fear Generation…The Wind Will Blow It Back.” Front features a solo all white look along with the collection year. Reverse side features all runway looks from the show.
Looking back at it, Raf Simons’s spring 2002 collection was eerily prescient. Presented on January 7, 2001, the show featured wrapped and masked models holding torches. A gesture of terror, fear, and even cult mentality, it pre-dated the September 11 terrorist attacks by nine months and the G8 protests that led to a civilian death by six, but offers a startling parallel in hindsight. It’s that ability to take the temperature of the world—even of things that have not yet happened, and filter it through fashion that is Simons’s strength.
