Chapter 2: The new old
The Raf Sandior universe is a hermeneutic one. This time though, for Couture, he opened the gates to another dimension. Inviting in the future of the past of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s together with its heroines, a pop cultural pastiche sneaks into the aesthetic repertroire. Stripes, sequins and plastic are not homoeopathic ingredients anymore, they become the core design platform. The restraint is gone.
