It's Déjà vu at Calvin Klein Jeans, but with a modern twist.
Calvin Klein Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp., and Mytheresa.com will launch a special-edition, women’s capsule called “Calvin Klein Jeans x Mytheresa.com The Re-Issue Project.” The offering will be sold exclusively on Mytheresa.com starting Wednesday.
The capsule features modernized, limited-edition versions of nine of the brand’s most iconic pieces. Designed by Kevin Carrigan, global creative director of Calvin Klein platinum label, Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear, the styles have been updated with advanced fabrics and technology and will be offered in multiple colors.
“For me, there is one brand which epitomizes clean American sportswear and denim — Calvin Klein Jeans,” said Justin O’Shea, buying director of Mytheresa.com, which is based in Munich. “We at Mytheresa.com have seen a huge resurgence in fashion towards the aesthetic that Calvin Klein Jeans pioneered, which led to us collaborating with the brand.” Mytheresa.com hadn’t carried Calvin Klein Jeans before.
Carrigan added, “This Calvin Klein Jeans capsule is all about a nostalgia for the Nineties and that whole look feeling very right again. It now feels like the perfect time to reissue the brand’s iconic hits to a new generation.” The capsule includes logo T-shirts, logo sweatshirts, high-waist and low-rise jeans, overalls, denim shirts, jackets and high-waist shorts. Retail prices range from $106 to $416.
To support the collection, the companies have hired Lottie Moss, model and half-sister of longtime Calvin Klein muse Kate Moss, who was photographed by Michael Avedon, wearing key pieces from the line. Avedon is the grandson of Richard Avedon, who shot the 1981 Calvin Klein Jeans campaign featuring Brooke Shields who uttered the famous tag line: “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.”
The 16-year-old Moss is signed with Storm Models. The images will appear exclusively on Mytheresa.com.
“We wanted to use someone who was fresh and current for this project, so we reached out to Lottie Moss. Lottie represents the relevant generation of today, but with an historical connection to the house of Klein. She’s cool and wears vintage clothing in her own way,” said Carrigan.
To celebrate the collaboration, Calvin Klein Jeans and Mytheresa.com will host an invitation-only event on Thursday in London.
Launched in 2006, Mytheresa.com features more than 180 top international designers, including Balenciaga, Roberto Cavalli, Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Valentino, Acne Studios, Stella McCartney, Miu Miu and Victoria Beckham.
“What he has done at Vuitton is really exceptional,” said @gameofthrones’ actress Gwendoline Christie on @mrkimjones’ final show for @louisvuitton. “He has rebooted luxury in terms of making it commercial, viable and contemporary. And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

“And so spending so much time with a character who thinks like that, inevitability you try and analyze yourself and go back and think about your own demons and dark chapters that you had in your life,” says @thedanielbruhl of his role in TNT’s “The Alienist.” The show, set in the Gilded Age of New York, also stars Dakota Fanning and Luke Evans.

“My personal philosophy to beauty is paying attention to oneself. I love to be outdoors, lots of fresh air, trying to take care of yourself as best you can.

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
