NEW BRAND - CALVIN KLEIN F/W 2017-18
CALM, COOL AND COLLECTED
The current fall/winter season marked Raf Simons’ debut as the new creative director at Calvin Klein, one of the most iconic names of American fashion. A highly-charged role that he mastered with a beautiful and calm yet strong and powerful collection for both men and women.
Rising to expectations, Simons dipped into the star-and-striped culture, a message reinforced by the fact that he commissioned artist Sterling Ruby to imagine America in an art installation. Simons imagined his own America and drew from its youth, often with gender neutrality.
Simon’s opted for Klein’s less-is-more tailoring of the Nineties, producing a collection that reaches out to a broad age bracket. There is an abundance of buttoned-up shirts in contrasting hues tucked into sharp trousers; all-over denim and handsome precisely-tailored coats. At times, he added a layer of transparent plastic over the outerwear.
