At Thursday’s Calvin Klein presentation for spring, global creative director Kevin Carrigan showed his multiple collections (sportswear, men’s, jeans, performance, swim, underwear, etc.) in a pop-up setting of a house frame. It, along with the clothes, was inspired by Mies van der Rohe. “This is about the foundation of ease, simplicity and the Modernist approach that Calvin Klein has always represented,” Carrigan said.
Sportswear and dresses were bright, with an emphasis on cobalt blue and viridian green (the palette was inspired by Ellsworth Kelly), often worked as color blocks or balanced with black and white. A loose black-and-white T-shirt was worn over a minidress — “skirts are much shorter this season,” Carrigan said — that was green in front, black in back. Most pants silhouettes were very lean; one pair of skinny jeans was paired with a matching cotton shirt, both in a vivid splatter-paint print.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
