Teenage Summercamp

Raf Simons 

De Muyter-Deinze. S/S 1997. First Edition. Softcover (catalogue housed in a vinyl-alike sleeve). 31x31 cm. Unpaginated (15 Pages). Book: VG+.

Incredibly scarce. Published two years before the ‘Isolated Heroes’ project (1999), Raf Simons’ ‘Teenage Summer Camp’ captures the aesthetic of the designer’s S/S collection (1997). Taken during the shooting of the video RAF SIMONS summer ’97 by Ronald Stoops, the photographs of the catalogue unveil “a band of teenagers who run out of school and finally come together in an imaginary U.F.O., an environment created by themselves where they can indulge their fantasies in contrast with their daily life and earthly things such as school, parents, etc. The silhouette is tight and close to the body, inspired by the Mods and the Punks in combination with schoolboys and surf boys. The materials are classical combined with vivid colours. They look old and washed off. Trash t-shirts with prints or pearls and shirts embroidered with ‘Teenage Summer Camp’”. Highly recommended.
