Apparently, it's not enough to collab with Adidas for ready-to-wear and show his second on-the-money couture collection this month. Raf Simons is now going to make costumes for both Sigourney Weaver and Isabelle Huppert in the forthcoming film "Body Art," which is based on Don DeLillo's novella, The Body Artist.
Weaver, who was sitting front row at the Dior couture runway this week in a very Simons-inspired outfit (black jacket, red scarf), said of the show, "I loved how Raf took those little vests and put them back to front. What he does is graceful. The shapes are beautiful. Will I wear it? You never know, but it's always good to see great theatre."
This will be Simons' second costuming job, his first being for the same director in 2009's I Am Love. Perhaps this go will show more of a Dior influence, rather than the minimalist Jil Sander look of Tilda Swinton's outfit below.
