A$AP Rocky / WWD | Raf Simons Spring Summer 2014

A$AP Rocky attended the Raf Simons Fall Winter 2014 as part of Paris Menswear Fashion Week yesterday evening. The American artiste wore a khaki coat over a white printed t-shirt from Raf Simons Spring Summer 2014.

Wished I could find a better full length picture, that khaki coat looked interesting. The Raf Simons show was one of the highly anticipated show this season, as it was announced earlier that he worked with artist Sterling Ruby on this collection. Initial reviews were very positive, as the collection brought a nostalgia edge and echoed some of the interesting elements in Raf's earlier work: the shapes, the patchworks, the punk movement.

Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Fall Winter 2014

For Raf Simons x Sterling Ruby Fall Winter 2014, the word / slogan "Father(s)" was emblazoned across several pieces, and short quotes were also seen inside some of the coats. I am dying to know what was the message inside the above coats. The font and placement seem to suggest a tribute to Helmut Lang, who was widely reported to have influenced Raf Simons's work in his early days. As in the German designer, not the wishy washy label it is today. Anybody care to enlighten me?

Love the above two looks, even though the gargantuan shoes looked comical. I wonder what Suzy Menkes has to say.
