Engaging the Fundamentals–Presenting collections with a minimalist eye, this time around, Calvin Klein Collection creative director Italo Zucchelli looked to the building blocks of American menswear to color the season. Constructing outfits with a reasonable mind, t-shirts, light jackets and pants made up the core components of a strict uniform. Beginning with Calvin Klein’s cornerstone, washed denim, the collection had an accessible tone that was easily blended into Zucchelli’s knack for modern details that included a neutral-hued sheer jacket and a boxy sweatshirt. Moving on from ensembles that are integrable to most to a more young aesthetic, a playful take on barely there but THERE prints coincided with baggy above the knee shorts, oversize t-shirts and inevitably the sports jacket. From there it was back to the heart of the season, which was most obviously the iconic jean jacket. From denim and creamy neutrals to jet black, the staple was the perfect tool to marry Calvin Klein’s heritage to today’s mode, whether it’s a rich obsession with leather or a sleek new awareness.
