After much anticipation, Raf Simons made his menswear debut at New York Fashion Week. Simons said the collection reflected how he first experienced New York, combined with how he sees it now.

In addition to watching the reaction to the current political situation in the U.S. Chunky knits with large kangaroo-like pockets were described by the designer as having a ‘do-it yourself attitude.’ masking tape used on various looks also added to this theme.

Oversized sweaters came in various colors and stripes, including bright blue and cream. Trench Coats were giving a playful vibe with knit sleeves. Plaid tweed jackets gave the collection a more grown-up vibe.
