Announcing the news this morning (25 November), The xx posted an image of their bassist Oliver Sim in a turtleneck with a small white "X" on the collar.

The band wrote, "Raf Simons / The xx coming soon!"

Back in August, Sim said of their next record, which will follow 2017's I See You, "We’re still very much figuring it out. I feel very curious. Though it does feel like a long time since the first record, we’re still new to it all. I don’t feel like a seasoned professional yet."

There's currently no release date for The xx and Raf Simons' clothing line.
