Since launching his eponymous label in 1995, Raf Simons has become one of the most prolific menswear designers of his time. Currently, the creative director at Calvin Klein, the Belgian designer has moved his own label’s operations Stateside since relocating for his new role. Simons has been touted for revolutionizing menswear with an aesthetic that evolved from matured schoolboy and graphic collage prints to low slung trousers. More recent collections of his eponymous line have brought back components from his early collections incorporated with streetwear pieces.
The Spring/Summer 2018 collection was inspired by Blade Runner and Asian cultures, in collaboration with a direct influence of the brand, Joy Division featuring drop-crotch tailored trousers, and t-shirts with the band’s original album art designed by Peter Saville.
