  • Raf Simons’ Spring 2006 collection titled “Icarus Surgit” revolves around the Greek myth of Icarus. As the story unfolds, the winged humanoid flys too close to the sun and consequently falls from the sky, drowning in the sea below. The designer focuses on the tale’s distinguishable traits of “airiness, movement and flight”, reinterpreting such through a variety of ambivalent garments. Using laser cutting techniques to execute such tedious feats, Simons’ was able to create grid cut out patterns alongside ancestral motifs.


    Coming in a slate grey base, this tank-top features laser cut out perforation in a strategic fashion. Blue Latin lettering reads, “Aether et Anima”, or “air and soul”, among the Roman numerals “MMDCCLIX”, or the year 2759. As a result of distressing, much of the graphic is fragmented yet still legible from afar, being a focal point of the collection. Layered under trench coats, Simons illustrates the variety of styling opportunities with such a unique piece, meshing with the fluent ethos of Spring 2006. Tagged as a size 46, fitting wildly oversized at a large, in great condition throughout.
