Raf Simons Teases Collaboration With The xx
Raf Simons has teased a new collaboration with atmospheric British trio The xx to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the band’s debut album, xx.
Three images posted to the official Raf Simons Instagram feed showed the band members — Romy Madley Croft, Oliver Sim, and Jamie xx — in black turtlenecks adorned with RS-embossed X pins. The images were captured by regular Raf Simons collaborator Willy Vanderperre.
Simons habitually incorporates his musical tastes into his designs and worked with The xx during his tenure at Calvin Klein. For the band’s 2017 track “I Dare You,” Simons enlisted the likes of Millie Bobbie Brown and Ashton Sanders for a music video that was described as a love letter to Los Angeles. Watch it again below.
You can expect more details on the Raf Simons x The xx collaboration to be announced in the next issue of London-based Fashion bi-annual System Magazine.
