Extending upon the captivating ‘Youth in Motion’ collection Raf Simons presented in February for Fall/Winter 18, today the designer released a brooding campaign shot by Willy Vanderperre. The image series, styled by Olivier Rizzo, features dark portraits highlighting pieces from the collection, with a model shot next to a vibrant still-life floral arrangement. The collection was inspired by youth and drug culture, adopting strong influences from ‘Drugs,‘ an 80s play that chronicled the rampant drug use of the time. Driving the theme home, part of the proceeds from the collection will be donated to recovery addiction programs.
