Supercool. That was the vibe creative director Kevin Carrigan — and 36 models — created Thursday at his fall presentation for Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein white label sportswear. Carrigan delivered an "ode to Francisco," referencing Francisco Costa's designer collection in more ways than one. For the Jeans collection, Carrigan said, "Gray is the new black," illustrated by boot-cut Western-inspired denim and textured knits. Drop-sleeve Ts were big and voluminous, infused with a bit of patent and shine.

As for the white label, Carrigan said he aimed to "reach a wide audience with the Calvin aesthetic," offering sportswear looks that ranged from a slouchy knit turtleneck to skinny pantsuits to a terrific metallic trench. He went "back to black" here, mixing in earth tones, cobalt and teal. The accessories were a highlight, and also mirrored Costa's collection with great patent and metal wedges, sleek cropped boots and square leather bags.
