In Demand: Raf Simons' Strap-Fastening Double Cap
Text: Dylan Kelly
After gracing the runway of Paris Fashion Week in the gold-embellished ballroom of the Shanghai-La hotel back in January, Raf Simons’ Fall/Winter 2019 releases are taking hypebeasts by storm. With inspiration derived from the artistry of Joy Division, the DJ behind the collection’s debut in Paris, and the cinematic style of David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, Raf’s latest range is filled with cultural motifs and social awareness, keeping his designs at the cusp of fashion.
As part of this stripped-back collection, the Belgian fashion designer released a double-layered, strap-fastened hat that expresses his sense of design exquisitely. Constructed with an intricate cotton weave, this statement accessory piece features an oversized cap superimposed on a smaller interior with six panel components in a sleek black finish. The Simons chapeau fastens with a double-strap to provide an industrial edge to a minimal, polished look. The result is an unrivaled, fashion-forward, Raf Simons headpiece that will be sure to promptly empty out inventory.
The designer lid is currently available on LN-CC’s website, retailing for $560. Delight your streetwear passions with this original Raf Simons headwear in all of its Belgian, high-fashion glory.
