Enfants Riches Déprimés, under the guidance of conceptual artist Henri Alexander-Levy, unveiled its Autumn-Winter 2024 collection on March 3. The setting, an evocative abandoned parking garage in Paris's storied 8th arrondissement, provided a striking contrast to the collection's rich baroque influences and punk-inspired nostalgia. As the show is breathtakingly and visually haunting, the AW24 show serves as Alexander-Levy's personal dialogue, providing the viewer a moment of reflection on the concept of culture and its imposed parameters.

The show was a conceptual exploration of punk's sensuality juxtaposed with a commentary on cultural suffocation. A captivating ambiance was created with ethereal green lighting cutting through a dense mist, allowing the collection's silhouettes to mysteriously emerge and recede into the shadows. The narrative of cynicism and despondency was further amplified as models, draped in elongated black leather coats, made their entrance astride vintage Mercedes-Benz and Rolls-Royce cars. The color scheme—deep blacks, rich oxblood red, and dark grays—served as a canvas for the intricate adornments of hand-strung pearls and vintage tapestries, evoking a sense of decadent glamour and rebellious excess from a forgotten era.
