Following the photo-drenched graphics of its first delivery, CALVIN KLEIN JEANS EST. 1978 delivers a slightly more adventurous range, straying from the picturesque scenes of cowboys to honor several other ardently-American subjects: rodeos, muscle cars and stock car racing. The overbranded vehicles and riders who pilot them are the core inspiration for this latest delivery, with genderless cuts informing the varied selection.
Denim western shirts, patterned sweaters and boxy T-shirts are all emblazoned with bold text and stylized imagery of bulls and automobiles. Neutral tones are accented by washed-out indigo, neon yellow and hot pink, with collaged graphic pullovers pushing beyond the core color palette — these are made even more bold by matching sweatpants. Rounding out the diverse array of layering pieces and bottoms, the line includes a printed pouch and oversized tote bag, complementing the core range with more in-your-face color.
Elsewhere, one of Raf Simons’ final CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC T-shirt designs recently hit stores.
