If the models from the Julien David Fall 2018 collection were to sit down with a cigar and play a poker game, it would make for a decent inspiration for a painting. At a first glance, the fashion designer's vision seems to be focused on providing an exuberant image of man's best friend. However, upon closer inspection there are certain connotations that reference normality and humanity's place within the animal kingdom. Due to intellectual spans and the incredible creativity and innovation individuals experience on a day-to-day basis, it is easy to forget that humans are in fact ape decedents.

The Julien David Fall 2018 range challenges this notion through contemporary menswear. The designer stated, "I wanted to take away the faces to consider the human species, sociologically, as another member of the animal family."
