“People, friends, family...” says Raf Simons when asked to come up with words that denote home to him. “Fireplace, pyjamas.” And it's a beautiful pair of crisp cotton pyjamas that Simons kicks off his residency as Guest Lover on AnOther Loves, with his first post coinciding with the day of the Dior show in Paris.
"I automatically try and create a family or home in different places, and wherever I am. I come from a very homey environment"
The Belgian designer was interviewed by Susannah Frankel for the latest issue of AnOther Magazine, accompanied by a glorious series of images photographed by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo, a duo who have a longstanding relationship with the designer. “I am really a very homey person,” he continues. “I automatically try and create a family or home in different places, and wherever I am. I come from a very homey environment."
Raf Simons will be Guest Loving next week. See his posts here.
