Raf Simons AW2005 M65 Jacket

365.00

By SS2005, Raf had begun to show signs of growing weary with his previous aesthetic, and by FW05’s “History of My World”, it became clear he was entering a new stage in his storied career. He experimented with new silhouettes, the most memorable recurring choice being wide leg, slim waisted pants contrasted with a tight top, and often finished with a cropped jacket. He occasionally turned the silhouette on it’s head, which razor tight pants and draping jackets. The outerwear and boots contributed a menacing, militaristic like feel which reminded us just who we were dealing with after all, and nods to Rafs past were seen in immaculately tailored coats with wide lapels and tight shoulders.

The signature outerwear of “History of my World” had a decidedly militaristic spin to it. For sale here is Raf’s meticulously designed interpretation of the m-65 jacket. The cut and detailing elevate the typically formless field jacket into a sharp work of tailoring fit for a general. The most notable aspects of the cut, are the roomy, wide shoulders, and narrow fitted waist, which flatter the wearer, giving them a rather regal silhouette. Some aspects more reminiscent of Raf’s early work include the gunmetal hardware, and zipper beneath the collar.
