Raf Simons Talks His Love/Hate Relationship With High Fashion

In a recent interview with Dazed, Belgian designer and purveyor of high fashion Raf Simons spoke on his spring/summer collaboration with L.A. artist Sterling Ruby. In the interview, Simons tackled a range of topics including teenage angst, his love/hate relationship with high fashion, and applying an outsider perspective when designing, whether it be for Christian Dior or his own line.

Simons also highlighted the modern youth’s choice to identify with everything, rather than identifying with one aesthetic, a stark contrast to the Belgian designer’s days in the ‘80s where people were classified under one subculture. Head over to Dazed to check out the full interview and read Simons drop gems like these:

“I’ve come to really question the system. As much as I am part of it, I have to question it for the simple reason that I wonder how far it can go. How far can it go until the moment that it might not work any more? You know, it needs a very in-depth talk to analyse it and it’s something that I don’t have all the answers to, but I do have a lot of questions. And I don’t think I’m the only one. It’s not just about fashion either, it’s the way we consume, the way we communicate and the way the younger generation look at things.”
