Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic Blade Runner was the inspiration for Raf Simons new menswear collection for Calvin Klein.
The Belgian designer chose New York’s Chinatown to show off his vision of the past for the future.

“‘Blade Runner’ has been inspiring for many years. I still wonder like why did I never, ever do something that relates to that movie after 22 years. But I think it needed to feel right in the circumstances. Because it’s a very filmic movie,” said Simons.
Maybe the song “seems it never rains in Southern California” was the inspiration for Mike Rubin. The US designer’s Krammer & Stoudt label combined casual cool with contemporary cuts to create a crisp and modern collection.
