From one of the most influential designers of all time, CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC needs no introduction.
Fall/Winter 2017 was Raf Simmons’ first chance to showcase his vision for the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC. With a long and prestigious resume including stints at Jil Sander and most recently, as creative director at Christian Dior, the fash pack has been eager to see what the designer could pull off for one of America’s most well-known luxury brands. The collection is an outsider’s approach to American culture – that is to say, Belgian-born Simmons approaches the landscape with fresh eyes. Neutral and tailored hues remain a staple of the brand’s identity, but with new twists – slouchy sleeves in primary colours, clear plastic coverings over floral dresses, and even feathers. We’re ready to try on the iconic runway look with the revealing semi-sheer fitted body and striped, bulky knit sleeves – it’s the perfect blend of chic and cheeky.
