Raf Simons Is Reissuing 100 Grails

The ‘Archive Redux’ collection is due to land this December.

Raf Simons is one of menswear’s most revered and collectible designers.

Pieces from Simons’ early shows have gone on to reach absurd figures on the secondary market, such as the “Riot Riot Riot” camouflage bomber jacket from 2001 – of which one sold for approx. $65,000 in 2018.

Giving the people what they so clearly want, the Belgian designer has announced that he will be reissuing a series of 100 pieces from his brand’s archives. Named ‘Raf Simons Archive Redux’, the collection will be presented to celebrate the label’s 25th anniversary.

The garments, curated by Simons himself, are said to represent different moments of the brand’s history with Simons reluctant to play favourites with certified collectible wears.

A series of teaser images coupled the announcement, revealing snippets of the collection including a “KOLLAPS” hoodie from the SS02 collection, a shirt and tie from AW98 and a monogrammed roll-neck from the debut collection of AW95 among others.

The Raf Simons Archive Redux collection will be available from selected retailers in December 2020, along with an SS21 collection later this year – following its original shows postponement due to Covid-19.
