Raf Simons Continues to Pay Homage to Joy Division With New Spring/Summer 2018 Releases
Highlighting Peter Saville’s ‘Unknown Pleasures’ cover.
Following up his first Spring/Summer 2018 release, Raf Simons recently dropped new items from his graphic-heavy collection. Continuing the homage to ’70s English rock band Joy Division and cult film Blade Runner, the new items feature Peter Saville‘s iconic album artwork and references to replicants.
Standout pieces include the text-heavy Black Wording Classic Hoodie, unique Convertible Joy Division Unknown Pleasures Two-Piece Hoodie and graphic-emblazoned Replicants Parka. The Convertible Joy Division Unknown Pleasures Two-Piece Hoodie is constructed from plush French terry and features a detachable panel and silver press-stud fastening hardware. While the cotton canvas Replicants Parka is a play on a classic military silhouette elevated by an aggressive print, recalling a scene from Ridley Scott‘s iconic 1982 film.
Priced at $890 USD and $2,200 USD, the latest releases from Raf Simons Spring/Summer 2018 collection is available now at retailers like SSENSE.
In case you missed, Raf Simons recently deconstructed the Ozweego for its Replicant capsule.
