Raf Simons introduces his second runway collection for Calvin Klein with the brand’s spring-summer 2018 collection. Showcased at the brand’s global headquarters at 205 West 39th Street, Simons found inspiration in American cinema for the new season. Cocktail dresses adorned with fringe represent glossy Hollywood dreams while patchwork shirts and trousers show off more utilitarian vibes. Kaia Gerber, the 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford, also made her runway debut at the show.
“It’s about American horror and American beauty,” says Raf Simons about the spring collection. “Fashion tries to hide the horror and embrace only beauty. But they are both a part of life. This collection is a celebration of that: a celebration of American life.”
