“With the audience scattered among abstracted Raf representations, and thus duly reminded of Simons’ significant contribution to the advancement of menswear, the scene was set for him to unveil his latest coup: a fully fleshed out S/S17 collection featuring Robert Mapplethorpe’s photographs, created in collaboration with the Mapplethorpe Foundation. Simons was approached by the foundation to collaborate and so he began sifting through the artist and photographer’s archives, selecting not just his most famous portraits of Patti Smith and Debbie Harry and his more overtly sexual work, but also his still life photographs of flowers, to use in the collection.” (Text: anothermag.com )
