Designer Raf Simons is currently the man behind Jil Sander. Having studied industrial design, he became a menswear designer in 1995 and worked closely with Walter Van Beirendonck, a member of the influential Antwerp Six. He was also exposed to the works of Martin Margiela and Jean Paul Gaultier, among others.

The Wall Street Journal takes a look inside the accomplished designer's Antwerp abode. The 43-year-old Simons' two-story modernist apartment features furniture by Pierre Jenneret, Isamu Noguchi, and George Nakashima, as well as artwork by Picasso, Mike Kelley, and Brian Calvin. [Wall Street Journal]
