A label everyone is watching closely since the inception of Raf Simons as the chief creative officer, Calvin Klein 205W39NYC has just unveiled its Pre-Fall 2018 collection.
The main line under the Calvin Klein family and the brainchild of Raf Simons, the 205W39NYC collection is one that continuously showcases Raf's vision and aesthetics of the "New Americana".
For this season, Raf has, once again, engaged two organisations to further realise his vision: The Andy Warhol Foundation for
the Visual Arts and Pendleton Woolen Mills.
Since his appointment in 2016, Raf continues to challenge conventional mindsets of fashion – a visionary that is not afraid to marry provocative creativity (from the likes of Warhol) with American tradition and heritage (that of Pendleton and the house of Calvin Klein itself); all whilst breaking every rule in the fashion game.
And who better to bring life to the collection than Raf's longtime collaborators: Belgian stylist Olivier Rizzo and photographer Willy Vanderperre who shot the collection in a barn-like setting that continues the story from its Spring/Summer 2018 campaign.
All in all, the key message is simple – to bring light to the world of the American spirit!
The Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Pre-Fall 2018 collection will be arriving in select Calvin Klein stores worldwide in the coming weeks.
