Raf Simons's namesake label has released its Spring 2017 campaign, shot by photographer Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo. The collection, which debuted at Pitti Uomo in Florence last summer, was inspired by the late artist Robert Mapplethorpe, whose work controversially analyzed themes of homoeroticism, BDSM and sexuality. The images arrive just one day before Simons's Fall 2017 show during New York Fashion Week Men's tomorrow night.
