Raf Simons is continuing his ongoing drug-inspired range with his latest collection referencing the 'Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo (We Children of Bahnhof Zoo)' film by Christiane F. The cult classic from 1981 is based on an autobiography by Christiane Vera Felscherinow. The movie itself takes place during the 70s during the Cold War time in Berlin, telling the story of Christiane F. and the opioid epidemic that took over the German city. The film shows graphic drug addiction, death and child prostitution.

The collection itself sees a series of t-shirts, jackets, jeans, hoodies and tote bags with graphic stills of different scenes. Notably, Raf Simons' work is made in support of organizations dedicated to aiding those who are in recovery from addiction. The entire collection is now available for purchase online and in-store globally at Raf Simons.
