Raf Simons’ drug-inspired collection hits the runway in a hazy new film

raf simons aw18 new york menswear fashion week

Continuing in his exploration of the many facets of youth culture, Raf Simons’ AW18 collection centred heavily around drugs. Weaving in and out of piles of fruit, vases of flowers, empty wine glasses and discarded crystal champagne flutes, the models wore t-shirts emblazoned with images of Christiane F. – the teenage heroin addict in the 1981 film of the same name – while elsewhere in the collection,…
