Raf Simons has been making headlines of late. Having recently announced his departure from the legendary house of Dior – which he helmed since 2012 – and with his own label reaching new levels of popularity among rappers and fashionistas alike, we celebrate legendary Belgian designer’s work with an editorial featuring a ton of pieces from his extensive archive.

Paired with garments from some of his high fashion peers – namely Helmut Lang and Maison Margiela – our shoot highlights the military, streetwear and youth culture themes that are so prevalent in Simons’ work, which have never felt more relevant despite their age.

For more artfully-curated editorials, check out Highsnobiety‘s floral-themed “La Blume” shoot.
