Menswear guru Raf Simons debuted his FW’18 collection in midtown Manhattan’s Sir Stage 37, to a room full of idle rich.

 

Titled “Youth in Motion,” the catwalk was the designer’s own vision of a Flemish inspired still life visual- a lavish display of fruits, wine bottles, pieces of bread and floral arrangements.

 

Inspired by the 1981 film “Christiane F.,” directed by Uli Edel- focused on the dangers of drug addiction. But of course, Simons in his very own way, he modernised the entire show with a techno playlist and colourful laser lights that gave a fresh vibe that he loves so much.

 

There were plenty of tailored oversized blazers paired with skinny trousers and accessories with latex gloves. Simons introduces new silhouettes, offering a boxy plaid coat topped with a bright yellow lining with a deconstructed turtleneck and satin cargo pants.

 

The colour palette used throughout was bright yet soft including- red, yellow, and orange and purple.

 

Subtle drug references were printed on scarves and knee pads, patches with letters LSD, XTC and GHB, or in a more obvious matter, as “Drugs” printed in block letters on a hoodie looking poncho.

 

In all this collection revealed Simon’s strong connection with Millennials and that he still can manage to inspire forthcoming generations and beyond.
