Raf Simons Quote
“I was intrigued by the idea of forbidden fruit, and what that meant now. The original inspiration came from the Flemish Masters and their approach to painting. It’s the tension between decrying luxury and the embracing of it; the mastery of craft and the beauty of artistic gesture; the reality and the unreality: you can’t have one without the other.”
