Raf Simons AW2002 Bondage Pants

Virginia Creeper was Raf Simons masterful perversion of Americana.  A thematic cousin of movies like “Nightmare on Elm Street” and books like “In Cold Blood”. Borrowing it’s name from a poison ivy like plant, Raf sent his models down a forested runway in pieces that — upon first glance — harken back to all of our youths. Summer camp crewnecks, down jackets, and letterman’s filled the runway, but, like sunset in a small town, reveal a nightmarish underbelly through oversized cuts, bondage straps, and distressed tops. Virginia Creeper perhaps stands as Raf’s most direct and viscerally stimulating exhibition of the themes of youth he often calls upon, a duality of both innocence and subversion. 

Like much of the season, there is a rich interplay of stereotypes here. Raf takes a thick cotton base and a side stripe, which together may conjure memories of a boarding school uniform, and then constricts the trousers with heavy PVC vinyl bondage straps. Among the minute detailing is a killer double-fastening system at the waist, where two d-rings hinged to near-overlapping bondage straps offer numerous styling choices.
