JOHN DAVIES, THE REDEEMERS, 1971 / RAF SIMONS A/W 2009.
"Shop director at a trendy boutique in trendy Daikanyama, southwest central Tokyo, he lives the single life in a fashionable 3-bedroom condo. A dedicated Garcon-ist from age 24 - he’s 32 now - he buys masses of outfits from each new season’s collection, reserved especially by his friendly sales. Just ffor instance, this time around it was 2 suits, 2 T-shirts, 3 shirts, 2 knits and 1 pair of shoes, all for a mere 600 thousand yen. Hanging around the room are just hat he’s wearing lately; his past spoils are stashed away in boxes, filling a 5-tatami-mat (10 sq.m.) storeroom from floor to ceiling."
