Raf Simons SS2003 Cell Tank Top

Raf Simons SS2003 Cell Tank Top


Raf Simons’ Spring/Summer 2003 collection, “Consumed,” is undoubtedly one of his most provocative bodies of work. Examining consumerist culture, the Belgian designer explained what it meant to be “consumed” through the use of faux-logos and found objects. As explained by the brand itself, “Today’s living environment is about consuming as well as being consumed; some suggest this could lead to an apocalyptic end, while others, particularly younger generations, take this reality as their cue to create new, more viable and flexible personas.” The show’s atmosphere was rather sinister. The models’ outfits were primarily monochromatic, and some were accessorized with aggressive leather harnesses and bondage straps.

This top features imagery by Peter de Potter, a frequent collaborator and legendary counterpart of Raf Simons. His graphic work is the defining aspect of Consumed, as he features on some of the collection’s most iconic pieces. This tank top dons an array of images, including a parody of the Canon logo. The cut is intentionally slim, designed to hug the wearer’s body.

Condition: 8/10. Some minor signs of fading. Very minor cracking on the print. Fading on the composition tag.
