About Raf Simons
Jil Sander, Dior, Prada - the list of fashion houses Raf Simons has worked for reads like a who's who of haute couture. The media-shy Belgian designer has also long since made a name for himself in the sneaker cosmos. Especially his celebrated collaboration with adidas is an absolute success story. Who doesn't fondly remember highlights like his groundbreaking interpretations of the Ozweego or the Stan Smith? We at Asphaltgold are happy to be one of the few selected retailers to offer Raf Simons' own footwear line from now on!
The Fall/Winter Drop 20, titled "RUNNER", takes the approach of putting sportswear influences into a high fashion context. Orion, Antei and Cylon are the names of the futuristic silhouettes in a clean-avant-garde look, which are now available in our shop. With the naming Raf Simons deliberately provides an insight into the thought process behind the models: an optimistic futurism. Premium leather and suede as natural base materials, technical innovations and strong colours are the common denominator of the first "RUNNER" drop.
