Raf Simons Mini Parachute Bomber - SS06 "Icarus Surgit"
Size EU 46 Background
Titled “Icarus Surgit,” Raf Simons’ Spring Summer 2006 collection drew inspiration from the mythological tale by implementing airiness, movement, and flight. The clothes relate to the Greek myth where Icarus rose to the sun and his wings dissolved causing him to fall into the sea. Many tops include latticework, alongside an oversized fit which sways fluidly with the body. Slate, dove-grey, gunmetal, and black were the colors chosen for their military nature. The Mini Parachute bomber remains as one of the most sought-after outwear pieces from this season, fully capturing the mythological design ethos. From the Dolman sleeves, cut-outs, overlays, detachable collar, wind flaps, and hidden pockets its airy nature sits gracefully when worn. As seen in Look 6, the jacket was done in a monotone color, as opposed to this dyed iteration which fully displays the details and silhouette.
