Simons drew inspiration from the movie Christiane F. for his Fall 2018 collection, which tells the story about a teenage junkie in late 1970s Berlin. Printed on sweaters and t-shirts, her face became a centerpiece in the collection, along with the word "DRUGS" as a recurring motif.
Possible trend —
The Dior alumni taught us a new way to wear sweaters: false sweater fronts that hang by the turtlenecks.
The location —
Set like a Flemish still-life painting, the show space was overflowing with bouquets of flowers, wine bottles, loaves of bread, and fruits. The runway portrays the salons of mid-century couture houses— a contrast from Simons' collection, which boasts utilitarian manners of pocketed 'space' pants and hooded tabards with their indexical narcotic references.
