Heron Preston’s debut for Calvin Klein is arguably one of the stand-out collections of the year. Enlisting the likes of Nas, Lil Uzi Vert and Kaia Gerber, the Brooklyn-based creative wanted to “create a collection for real people” and speak to not only his specific friend group, “but the rest of the globe” — and he certainly delivered.
Now six months into his creative consultant role at the famed fashion house, Preston returns with his second collection for Calvin Klein, this time heavily referencing streetwear and honing in the idea of what is essential.
Overstated simplicity and oversized silhouettes arrive with Preston’s signature orange detailing on classic styles that have been tailored for a future fit. Straight-leg joggers in plush cotton french terry are accompanied by waffle thermal knits, lined shirt jackets and puffers, as the creative’s penchant for sustainability is laid bare with organic cotton, recycled polyester and nylon rounding out the collection.
“For Fall, it was about introducing new materials and dissected, timeless essentials that are interesting,” said Preston on the capsule. “We thought about how Calvin Klein shows up in the world, in a modern way. What I love most about Season 2 is the versatility of each piece and the different styling options through the layering that we designed into the collection.”
