Calvin Klein Snaps Back to the Nineties

-------

CALVIN KLEIN

Calvin Klein the brand has a bigger claim on the nineties than most: The decade was Calvin Klein the man’s heyday. For Fall, Kevin Carrigan keyed into that heritage with collections for women and men that were defined by their heather gray color palettes and their soft, unstructured layers. Most nineties of all was underwear stitched with the company’s logo that peeked not just from the waistbands of jeans, but also tube skirts for the girls and tailored pants for the boys. The briefs conjured visions of Kate Moss and Marky Mark, aka Mark Wahlberg, in their own heydays, when they starred in Calvin Klein commercials. The company recently launched a #MyCalvins marketing campaign on Instagram that seems to be catching on—3,158 photos of hard abs and nearly bare asses and counting. The point being that Carrigan and co. are equally as focused on the now.

In a season in which a return to comfort and an emphasis on sweater dressing are two of fashion’s big messages, Carrigan’s collections had a lot going for them. On the women’s side, an outfit that combined an oversize twinset in soft, ribbed black angora and slouchy boot-cut jeans that pooled over slip-on style sneaks was a personal favorite.

In Milan, Calvin Looks Hot And Keeps Cool

-------


The Calvin Klein man—at least as Italo Zucchelli, Calvin Klein Collection’s creative director, sees him—is a sporty hunk. No waifs on the Calvin catwalk. And few, either, at the lavish party the label threw at its European headquarters last night to celebrate the new collection. CK models, including former label face David Agbodji and upcoming campaign boy Dmitry T. (who also opened and closed the Spring show), mixed with Joe Jonas, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Francesco Scognamiglio, and Francisco Costa. Agbodji and Dmitry had the night off, but a troupe of hulking dudes were on the clock: Entertainment was provided by a dozen CK-clad dancers, who swayed on balconies to the sounds of DJ Stretch Armstrong. Zucchelli himself paid homage to the archetypal Klein muscle boy, Mark Wahlberg, a picture of whom (from his nineties-era, Herb Ritts-shot Calvin underwear ads) was emblazoned on his T-shirt. Between the gogo boys and the company (like swimming champion Nicolò Ossola), you’d expect the temperature to be rising, but not here. The party was unnaturally cool—at least by Milan standards—thanks to the gusting AC. “It’s a piece of New York in Milan,” Zucchelli said with a laugh.
