Raf Simons Channels the New Wave Apocalyptic Mood of “Blade Runner” for Spring

Under the Manhattan bridge on east Broadway in Chinatown, where bustling produce and fish markets line the streets with dank odors of rotting food, Raf Simons transformed a plaza into a post apocalyptic set for his latest menswear show. His models paraded down a crowded, neon washed, puddle strewn walkway wearing water-resistant coats and rain gear in a clear reference to the sci-fi film “Blade Runner.”  Simons’ replicants stormed the catwalk shrouded in trench coats and tattered, over-sized sweaters, while wearing round-brimmed hats and carrying umbrellas that glowed like light sabers.

The new film “Blade Runner 2049” comes out in October, thirty years after the original film, which is either coincidental, or brilliant timing for Raf Simons new collection.
