Yesterday marked Raf Simons' third runway outing for Calvin Klein. Whereas last season's collection delved into the dark recesses of horror (complete with red paint-splattered raincoats straight out of American Pyscho), Simons fell back onto a more optimistic viewpoint for Fall 2018. “Less horror this time, more hope,” he said.
The barn-like mise-en-scene at the American Stock Exchange was undoubtedly bizzare – we're talking sculptures by Ruby Sterling hanging off metal scaffoldings while models walked down the runway ankle deep in popcorn. But the collection nonetheless presented some standout pieces: heavy duty jackets in fireman orange, floor-sweeping prairie dresses – some with strategic cutouts – and of course, those ubiquitous knitted balaclavas.
