Raf Simons x non-no 1999 "We Are All Prostitutes" Tee Shirt


The gamut of deifying platitudes: holy grail, impossible-to-find, you’ll-never-see-this-again, etc., get tossed around with such banality that we’ve become desensitized to pieces truly worthy of such monikers. This shirt, however, can stake a claim to any of the above. It was a limited run exclusive collaboration with Japanese magazine non-no, and has never before surfaced online. Featuring in stark lettering the title of a song by the post-punk band “The Pop Group”, its design exhibits multiple traits of pre-2000 Raf, including a slim, stretchy cut, and raw hems all around.

The anti-consumerist nihilism suggested by the slogan becomes rather interesting in the canon of Raf’s work, it points to the thematic undertones of Consumed an entire four years before the now-iconic work crossed the runway, and presents a sort of absolutism that can be seen as underscoring the youthful rebellion that propelled the seasons from “How to Talk to your Teen”, up to “Confusion”. What was previously merely suggested is plainly laid out in the open here.

Condition: 8.5/10. Normal signs of wear, no significant flaws.
