Originally debuting during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, the dystopian-like pieces walked alongside a set paying homage to a small Chinatown locality in New York City’s Lower East Side district dominated by red and blue neon lights coupled with a rain and smoke machine. Marking the Belgian designer’s second show, star items from the collection include umbrellas with glowing handles, lanterns featuring iconic New Order and Joy Division artwork by Peter Saville as well as a series of collaborative tote bags with Eastpak. References to Blade Runner is made even more apparent with “Replicants” graphics found upon a number of items.
Oversized outerwear is also a noteworthy part of Raf’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, which incorporates sideways blazers wrapping around the body and sleeveless coats with elasticized ends.
Interested fans can peruse and pre-order the full Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2018 over at Antonioli’s online store now, while those interested in Raf Simons’ Joy Division and New Order T-Shirts can head over to Dover Street Market to cop.
