Raf Simons returned to Paris Fashion Week for his Spring/Summer 2019 showcase in a warehouse in Montreuil, Paris. His latest presentation was more of a return to the old tailoring codes once required in luxury menswear, prior to the current focus on sportswear casual. The shift in focus came in the form of haute couture revival. Raf stated in an interview with Vogue, “We need a new outline. I know I was part of it myself, but too many hoodies with prints! You know, something needs to shift”.
