Belgian designer Raf Simons launched his namesake men’s collection in 1995, after switching from an industrial design course to fashion at Antwerp’s Royal Academy. Immersed in the counterculture of early 90s Antwerp, Simons captured the energy of the city’s fashion underground in pioneering collections inspired by music and the rebellious energy of youth culture. Athletic influences, minimalism, and deconstruction join futuristic prints and color schemes in his relentlessly modern blends of men’s tailoring and streetwear.
Pop art-influenced graphics, collaged photo prints, and high-tech sneakers designed in a recurring collaboration with adidas complement parkas, bomber jackets, graphic tees and button-downs, slim trousers, and casual knits in Simons’ masterful synthesis of nostalgic inspirations and futuristic outlook.
With a long-lasting career spanning over three decades, Belgian designer Dries Van Noten has garnered recognition as one of the most progressive purveyors of eclectic style and craftsmanship. Known and celebrated for transcending luxury fashion conventions with a serenely subversive aesthetic and cerebral design sensibility, the accomplished third-generation tailor and member of the legendary Antwerp Six collective delivers a design-centered men’s ready-to-wear offering that focuses on soft yet precise tailoring, studied colors, and bold patterns. Rendered in premium custom-milled textiles and executed in perfected cuts and silhouettes, streamlined jackets, long cotton drill coats, boiler suits, and denim trousers take cues from traditional workwear.
Quintessential casualwear staples including boxy button-up shirts, knit polos, basic crewnecks, and swim shorts all lend themselves to easy yet sophisticated layering. Early-70's psychedelic and digitally-enhanced prints featuring vivid hues and undulating patterns serve as an optimistic visual counterbalance. Known for marrying the worlds of art and contemporary fashion, Van Noten’s collections often feature the works of illustrious fine artists of the past and present.

Hello to all. We have been offline for over a year. Nevertheless, we are now back!
You may not know but those of us who were ambassadors for Zindigo were badly let down by them. The company went under with many losing money. We lost money too.
The site's new style is a lot simpler than the one a year ago. Updates will be made mostly on the blog page. The catalogue is also being revamped as this will be a main promotion vehicle. The About page is also more prominent as compared with last year.
Our Contact page has remained relatively the same. In addition, there will be no individual designers page showcasing their individual items. We hope you find the simpler site more enjoyable. Thank you for your patience.
We have said it before and we say it again, looking good doesn't have to come with a big price tag! There are so many ways to elevate a budget-friendly dress. Here is another way as we have done before.
