Menswear has had minute changes year after year. Raf Simons attempted to change the shape of menswear in his fall 2012 collection. The oversized shapes, interesting styled mutli-layered looks, formal yet causal tailored shorts that can be easily worn with sneakers, and the colorful fabric choices were pretty superb. A stand out piece, for me, was the chesterfield coat in the cool vibrant blue which is a great staple for fall. Simons really took inspiration from what the younger generation is wearing today. Fashion is about reinvention and those above the knee shorts throughout the collection reflected that, perfect for west coast weather. Simons did a great job in directing the reshape of menswear.
