Grailed unveils 20 most coveted Raf Simons tops
Long before his days as the magician behind the resurgence of Calvin Klein,
and even before his days at Dior, Raf Simons had developed quite the cult
following for his streetwear suitable designs for his eponymous label. Many
of his pieces were known to sell out, and even go for more than the
original price on resale sites.
There were those that were heartbroken when they missed that must-have Raf
Simons piece. However, thanks to Grailed, Raf Simons fans can get a second
chance to shop those pieces they always wanted.
