SIMONS, Raf. Isolated Heroes.

(Antwerp): Raf Simons. 1999. First Edition. Quarto. Legendary collaboration between Raf Simons and David Sims, for Simons’ Spring-Summer 2000 collection. Rather than use professional models, Sims subjects come from the street, the photographs transcend more traditional fashion photography, as they reach for a timeless quality, devoid of signs of the times or traces of trendiness and made the industry re-evaluate the dictum of beauty. The photographs here are a peaceful vindication of modern perception of beauty, a resolute alternative to the cliched glorification of male strength. A stunning work that deals with beauty, youth, masculinity and the perfect isolation of all these preoccupations. A fine unopened copy.
