Calvin Klein’s Sleek Sweep for Fall

Although shocking colors and prints were key for spring, Kevin Carrigan took the brand in a more graphic, sleek direction for fall.

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.
