Raf Simons is shuttering his eponymous brand.

The Belgian fashion designer, who launched the label in 1995, took to Instagram on Monday to announce that he has decided to close the company.

In a statement, Simons confirmed the spring/summer 2023 collection will be the last range released.

"The spring/summer 2023 collection is the conclusion of an extraordinary 27-year journey and the final season of the Raf Simons fashion brand," he wrote. "I lack the words to share how proud I am of all that we have achieved."

To conclude, Simons thanked his team and fans for their ongoing support.

"I am grateful for the incredible support from my team, from my collaborators, from the press and buyers, from my friends and family, and from our devoted fans and loyal followers. Thank you all, for always believing in our vision and for believing in me," the 54-year-old added.

Previously, Simons served as creative director of fashion brands including Jil Sander, Christian Dior, and Calvin Klein.

He was named co-creative director of Prada in April 2020.
