Discovering RAF SIMONS in Tokyo

7 months ago
It was in 1997 that I joined UNITED ARROWS where I used to work. The first time I visited the UNITED ARROWS HARAJUKU was when I moved from my hometown of Sapporo to Tokyo and it was overwhelming. I remember clothes from RAF SIMONS hanging on the rack there. Some of the photographs on the catalogues and styling editions of UNITED ARROWS at that time were actually sent by Raf Simons, and because to Mr. Kurino's assistance, they were getting along with the designer and buying their clothes. Back then, I couldn't afford to buy their clothes, but I still regret that I should have pushed myself and bought it from UNITED ARROWS... This time, I chose the RAF SIMONS pieces from the 90's collections with those memories.
