SS18

Putting in my Raf Simons SS18 (new) order



Raf Simons SS18 New Order tshirt

After Raf, I consider myself New Order’s second biggest fan. So I’ll be ordering all of the New Order merch lanterns, tees and jackets from the Raf Simons SS18 collection.

Those aside, I also love the red cocoon coats (inspired by his time at Dior), the wet-look macs and the 4XL size sweaters. The sou’wester bonnets? Not so much, but they all contributed to the styling and the overall mood.

The show was staged in the New York Supermarket on East Broadway, evoking a Blade Runner-esque scene of shiny streets, oppressive humidity and east-meets-west “cultures sliding together”. Punk and youth culture are omnipresent themes for Raf and they came across this season in a overall attitude rather than studs and safety pins…
