Raf Simons AW2005 Poltergeist Long Sleeve Tee Shirt

Raf Simons AW2005 Poltergeist Long Sleeve Tee Shirt


By SS2005, Raf had begun to show signs of growing weary with his previous aesthetic, and by AW05’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 its head, with 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 Raf’s past were seen in immaculately tailored coats with wide lapels and tight shoulders.

The graphic imagery produced for “History of my World” offers a glimpse into the scattered psyche of a youthful outsider. References to the classic horror film “Poltergeist” resurface throughout, occasionally with the phrase “The Poltergeist in the Machine”. The use of monster movie simulacra as a simile for a childhood as an outsider is both striking and painful. As with many of the tops from this season, it features an elongated and razor sharp cut.
