Interview with Robbie Snelder (Raf's muse/longtime assistant)
http://www.sz-mag.com/news/2016/04/robb ... af-simons/

Choice excerpts:
L.P: What was the atmosphere like in the studio while you worked together?
R.S: There was always music playing, we could laugh, smoke like hell. We made croque monsieurs together, nobody ate alone. We were a family. After the studio hours we even went to the cinema together, we celebrated New Years together. Our work was our life, the boundaries faded.

L.P: Could you share some unforgettable moments of this decade-long companionship?
R.S: [...] One day, Raf was invited for dinner somewhere fancy with Cathy Horyn and Tim Blanks. Raf and Cathy were talking fashion. I suggested Tim to go for a beer. He agreed because before becoming a fashion journalist he was a music reporter and knew Motörhead, so we had something to talk about, which I found much more interesting. As for my memories with Walter [Van Beirendonck], he threw parties where you got a black, white or red invitation and you had to dress by the color of your personal invitation. Imagine the visual flintstone this resulted in. I recall wearing a Nazi uniform, to provoke a bit.

I desperately need a virginia creeper crewneck and a poltergeist sweater to complete my collection. I'm willing to pay nearly any price for it, but they're just so hard to come by online these days. One guy on grailed has one in medium but seems to have dropped off the map and doesn't respond to offers. I doubt there's any way to find it besides keeping my eye on fromjapan.

edit: there are a couple on a japanese auction site but they're ass
