One of my favourites of the work of Raf Simons. This coat serves as a perfect succinct representation of his career, incorporating elements of goth subculture, juxtaposition between classic tailoring and futuristic minimalism as well as his signature emotional touch. The coat was officially named "SATAN" in a Japanese catalogue due to its unmistakably devilish peak lapels. It was also shown on the runway in the Autumn/Winter 1998 "Radioactivity" collection as the star piece of the look - and deservingly so.
The coat is 100% wool, which seemed to be one of Raf's favourite materials in this era. There is also a lovely vent in the back and a peculiar double button fastening, meaning there are 2 button-holes on each side of the opening and a seperate button part. The coat also has the lovely pinstriped black-on-grey lining.
Made in Belgium 9/10 condition, small tear on interior pocket.
