Here it is... the INFAMOUS spring/summer 2003 Raf Simons parachute-bondage-military bomber jacket. An unbelievably lucky find on eBay. Now that I own this, along with the pyramid jacket, I have almost reached wardrobe nirvana. Finding this ultimate bad boy took about four years searching online and at every archive sale I could go to.
As someone pointed out on Tumblr, this jacket offers almost limitless possibilities for smuggling sweets into movie theatres / meds through customs. I haven't even counted all the pockets. There's a big zip-pocket across the back too.
I almost literally DIE for Raf's SS03 collection, 'Consumed'... SO, SO GOOD:
The jacket features in CIRCLING OVERLAND, the short film made for Raf by Jean-Francois Carly:
The other SS03 items I own are the printed shirt and the CONSUMED sweater. (EDIT: GOD MY FACE USED TO BE PUFFY. CARBS ARE THE DEVIL, Y'ALL) I'm always on the lookout for more pieces from that collection. Below are images which I have saved of SS03 pieces which were are some point for sale on eBay / Yahoo Auctions, but which I haven't managed to buy yet:
