After showcasing the incendiary Fall/Winter 2018 collection for his eponymous label, Raf Simons is closing New York Fashion Week 2018 with his latest Calvin Klein 205W39NYC collection, which hits the runway in mere hours.
The Belgian designer’s vision for the legacy American house has yielded a reimagining of the brand from the ground up; even it’s core denim and underwear lines have been reworked with contemporary styling and star-studded campaign imagery. At the heart of the brand is the mainline collection, Calvin Klein 205W39NYC, which Simons debuted for Fall/Winter 2017. The show was one of our favorites of the year, with a host of progressive designs that won over audiences and critics. Spring/Summer 2018 was similarly impressive, as the designer built upon his divergent take on the label’s Americana heritage, resulting in subversive Western shirts, denim and knitwear elevated by Simons’s keen eye.
Check out the livestream below when the show begins at 8 p.m. EST tonight. Brush up on Simons’s latest showcase with our backstage look at his own label’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection and see what fashion insiders had to say about it.
