Raf Simons is no stranger to the intersection of electronic music and fashion. Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz and The Black Madonna have spun at his afterparties, and his collections even count EBM legends Nitzer Ebb as fans.
The Belgian designer has further cemented his good taste by soundtracking his Paris Men’s Fashion Week show earlier this week with rhythmic noise act Giant Swan. The Bristol duo’s brooding 2017 release on Timedance, “IFTLOYL”, fit perfectly with the designer’s exaggerated post-punk aesthetic.
Simons isn’t the only one keyed into Giant Swan’s output. The track was one of our favorite tracks from last year, even featuring in our list of the 20 tracks that defined Berlin clubbing in 2018. Listen to it above, and see it synced with the show in Paris over at the Raf Simons website here.
