Although shocking colors and prints were key for spring, Kevin Carrigan, global creative director of Calvin Klein, took the brands (better, jeans, performance, underwear and accessories) in a more graphic, sleek direction for fall. Color-blocked dresses and skirts were done in neutral tones with pops of red, while much of the outerwear was men’s wear inspired. Carrigan also played on a structure-versus-softness juxtaposition with, for instance, a slouchy suit in bold red.
For men, looks were clean and tailored, worked in a subdued palette of mostly black, gray and white. A matte puffer coat came in a suit fabric with a waterproof coating, while a variety of layering pieces were shown under suit coats for an urban aesthetic. Steel blue, brown and black jeans were treated with a waxed finish (women’s, meanwhile, were sexy and skinny in “liquid metal” golds, silvers and bronzes), and classic underwear was updated in a silvery gray microsheen stretch fabric.
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)
