Cover picture for the articleAs the lights went up on Raf Simons’ show yesterday, it was his encyclopaedic knowledge of film history that shone through first. There were the computer units straight out of Alien​’s Nostromo spaceship, industrial spiral staircases lifted from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis, retro fonts nodding to Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey: all references that Simons has touched on repeatedly in previous collections across the decades. But even given a legacy of paying homage to his favourite sci-fi flicks, this collection seemed to mark a new chapter for Simons – and, perhaps more interestingly, one that felt like a diversion from the work he’s been doing with Prada over the past two seasons.
