032c Salutes Raf Simons’s Tenure at Dior

“If I could be completely anonymous, I would. But, these days, it’s not possible anymore in fashion. Since working at Jil Sander, and especially since Dior, the whole thing is very global and exposed. It’s over-the-top exposed and communicated. And that’s not me as a person.”

(Raf Simons in conversation with Pierre Alexandre de Looz, 032c Issue 27)

Following his sudden resignation, 032c salutes Raf Simons’s tenure at the French mega-house with an all-Dior shoot at a modernist bungalow in Berlin’s Hansaviertel, with photography Yves Borgwardt and fashion by Paolina Leccese and Kuschan Hojjatian.
