RAF SIMONS Isolated Heroes
First Edition. Quarto. SIGNED by Simons. Twenty one portraits of young men taken by David Sims in a style reminiscent of Rineke Dijkstra. While clothing is not prominent in many of the images, the minimalism and asymmetrical hair styling by Guido Palau are entirely consistent to the Raf Simons vision. Instead of using professional models, the "heroes" were cast from the streets of Antwerp and then styled by Palau and Peter Phillips. The resulting images are an iconic realization of 90s street style and attitude. An elevation of the commercial fashion publication as fully realized artist book. Lightly bumped at the spine ends and bottom corner of front cover; faint surface wear to the covers, otherwise near fine in photo-illustrated laminated boards.
