Raf Simons AW2003 Biker Coat

Raf Simons AW2003 Biker Coat


For the fall of 2003, Raf was granted access to Peter Saville’s personal archive (marking the first time such a request was granted by Saville). The runway felt arid and sparse in comparison to its predecessor, “Consumed", and was unmistakably sculpted by the stark, geometric imagery of Saville, who blended shapes from the German Bauhaus movement with distinctly modernist calligraphy. The silhouettes were once again borrowed from the working class youth, as had became the norm for Raf, though Saville’s visuals contributed a breath of restraint not seen since his pre-2000s work.

The biker coat was a staple of Raf’s early collections, appearing in wool and leather throughout a handful of his pre-2000 collections. Shown here is one of the latest, and in turn most sophisticated iterations of the silhouette. It’s made with a rich corduroy fabric, and features the trademark cut of Raf’s tailored outerwear, with an elongated silhouette and high-arm holes. 

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
