Pulsar – 139

Pulsar continues Raf Simons’s exploration of bouclé – a soft nubbly textile associated with high fashion tailoring – marrying it with the stripe theme to create a pulsing pattern of speckled colour on a single coloured base. Close-to, the pattern reveals the soft, irregularly shaped loops created by the twisted yarns in the bouclé. From further back, a hazy striped pattern emerges in 3cm bands, formed by the greater and lesser intensity of the loops.
