Raf Simons SS17 campaign by Willy Vanderperre and Olivier Rizzo
To discover absolutely the campaign of the collection SS17 of Raf Simons photographed by Willy Vanderperre and realized by Olivier Rizzo.
The collection presented at Pitti Uomo Imagine in Florence revealed an unprecedented collaboration between creator and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe known for his work on the New York gay and fetish communities of the 1970s and 80s.
The campaign highlights the pieces of the printed collection of works of Mapplethorpe.
Beyond the print, the campaign is deeply inspired by the artist with a subtle sexuality revealing in the black and white images. The mannequins with their open collared shirt and a thin belt around the neck seem to bear the imprint of Mapplethorpe.
