Its seldom we report on this sort of news, but we felt this couldn’t be overlooked as it could result in big changes to one of the most influential brands and designers of our time. Futurepresent is the global master licensee of Raf Simons and essentially the governing body of the company, they have announced today, in the midst of Paris Fashion Week, the business relationship will be suspended for the Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection, and all showroom appointments have been cancelled.

It is said that tomorrow’s show in Paris showing this Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection will proceed, and that deliveries of the impending Spring ’11 collection will continue, as far as the future.. we’re unsure at this point. One thing we do know, is that as devastating as this sounds, there will be no shortage of people wanting to back one of the most important designers of our generation.
