Raf Simons AW2002 Distressed Leather Tote Bag

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. 

Luxuriously grunge. The thick, intrinsically distressed feel to this tote back ascribes a rugged edge to the classic tote bag. The aesthetic is furthered by utility-style pockets and a d-ring. Aged to look as if one has been carrying it for years.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
