Henri Levy’s French punk luxury label Enfants Riches Déprimés, or “depressed rich kids,” debuted a romantically disheveled collection for Spring/Summer 2018. This season, Levy’s pampered youth appear to have matured from previous collections’ firmly rebellious tone, replacing it with a sort of dismissive sophistication that came through an array of unkept but opulent garments. This indulgent carefreeness was seen in the off-center double-breasted suits, billowing untucked oxford shirts, head-to-toe velvet outfits and chunky knits that slipped off shoulders and spilled over hems. Outerwear pieces worn without shirts and uncombed hair gave off a morning-after look, while Marie Antoinette-inspired bows, enameled pendants and plush berets revealed old-money heritage. On the depressive side of influences, grim motifs such as the “Columbine” knit sweater and the dark pop-cultural references, including the twins wearing matching tracksuits walking hand-in-hand, bringing to mind The Shining– draped a layer of bleakness over the collection.
