Willy Vanderperre x Raf Simons: The Exhibition
Photographer and close friend to Raf Simons, Willy Vanderperre is bringing to life the Raf Simons retrospective, which he compiled together for a print magazine that will now be showcased in a Berlin based art gallery. Highlighting 20 years of the Belgian designer, Vanderperre captures his rise from his youth interning at Walter Van Beirendonck to becoming his current self as the Creative Director of Dior and his own brand, Raf Simons. Located at the 032c Gallery, the photographic exhibition focuses on the concept of youth, bringing relevant characteristics of the teenage period to life, that being, the layout of the exhibition resembling a school locker. The organic flow of brilliance throughout Simons’ and Vanderperre’s relationship has created a formation of true representation of the futuristic youth.
