Former creative director of Dior, Raf Simon, is set to debut his eponymous Spring 2017 menswear collection in June. After leaving the French fashion house, citing that there was a lack of creative freedom, Simon has decided to design under his own name, seemingly allowing those restrictions to finally be lifted.
With a plan to showcase his Spring 2017 menswear line in Florence this year as opposed to Paris, Simon’s thoughts, when speaking to Vogue.com, were “I am thrilled to be there again this season to present my spring/summer collection as well as a special project we are developing especially for Pitti“.
The line will be showcased between June 14-16, 2016 at the Pitti Uomo trade show. It sure will be interesting to see what ideas this fashion designer has in store for us.
