Raf Simons' Joy Division & New Order T-Shirts Just Dropped
Celebrating some of their most iconic albums.
When Belgian designer Raf Simons unveiled his Spring/Summer 2018 collection in New York back in June, one of the standout pieces featured album covers from legendary British graphic designer Peter Saville. The two had worked together in the past, with Simons previously referencing Saville’s artworks and recruiting him to help redesign the Calvin Klein logo in early 2017.
The tees featured iconic designs from Joy Division and New Order – the band that Joy Division became following the death of singer Ian Curtis in 1980. One tee features the cover of Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album on the front, with the artwork for the Substance compilation album on the reverse. The second tee sees New Order’s Power, Corruption & Lies cover spanning both the front and back of an otherwise plain black shirt.
The two T-shirts are available from Dover Street Market now, with prices ranging from £260 GBP to £295 GBP (approx. $350 USD to $350 USD). In other fashion news, Michèle Lamy is set to take over part of Selfridges’ London flagship for a boxing-themed installation.
