Last night, menswear titan (and beautiful humanRaf Simons showed his Spring 2016 collection at Paris Fashion Week. While more distantly related to Simons' powerhouse Fall 2014 collection/collaboration with artist Sterling Ruby, the pieces (especially the outerwear) are distinctly "Raf."

According to Style.com, the designer called this collection "very gang." It's a statement that was seen through the madras-print hoods that models wore on the runway—even though it resulted in a few of Raf's boys falling off the runway, ironically due to lack of vision. 



Needless to say, the most discussed piece would be the cropped knits, crafted to look like they were discovered in your grandparents' attic, devoured by moths. Naturally they have the boyish charm that's inherent to Raf's design history, but there's no getting around the fact that trying to wear one will leave you looking like Kid Cudi at Coachella crossed with your grandmother.




But don't let cropped knits phase you, the outerwear was incredibly on-point, with quarter-zip duster jackets ruling the runway next to trench like, high-collar coats. 




With tailored trousers competing for face time with baggier silhouettes, Raf reminds us that for all the of the bold (and even graphic) material that he's produced, it's his details that really shine. Whether it's his ability to properly tailor his garments, or be selective with geometric, dot pattern prints.

...Oh and before we forget, those coked-out adidas were fire.
