Raf Simons continues to release graphic-heavy garments for Spring/Summer 2018 surrounding the 70s British rock band Joy Division and the film 'Blade Runner.' The newest seasonal range is adorned with Peter Saville's highly recognized 'Unknown Pleasures' album artwork. Simons honors the rock band and film through graphic references throughout the monochromatic range. The capsule is comprised of simplistic silhouettes including a hoodie, a jacket, and a t-shirt.

The notable pieces include a text-bearing 'Black Wording Classic Hoodie', the 'Joy Division Unknown Pleasures' double hoodie, and graphic-accented 'Replicants Parka.' The two-piece hoodie is crafted from a plush French terry material and has detachable panels, as well as fastening hardware constructed with silver press studs. The Parka is made from a cotton canvas and takes on a militaristic aesthetic, which nods to the 1982 film Blade Runner. The collection is available at select retailers now including SSENSE.
