NEW YORK, Apr 10, 2015/ — Yesterday, Kevin Carrigan, Calvin Klein Global Creative Director, presented the men’s and women’s Calvin Klein sportswear, jeans, underwear, performance, and accessories lines for Fall 2015 lines on models posed within vignettes that echoed the interior of a luxurious 70’s inspired New York City apartment.
For Fall 2015, Kevin Carrigan imagines seductive, urban nomads at play with a new sense of twisted elegance. He calls them “sensual individualists” who are irreverent and usually in a state of dishabille.
For the season, Mr. Carrigan chose textiles and surfaces that evoke a sense of fierce confidence. For women, sportswear is soft with a rebellious edge in second-skin ultra-suede, mohair and smooth silk.
Coats and dresses are elongated in a new, maxi length. A waist defining flecked sweater skirt, paired with a matching long-sleeve crop, makes a strong, uninhibited statement.
The scarf-neck blouse, comprised of cozy, textural knits, is open and flirtatiously free-spirited. Designed for fit and function, a Calvin Klein performance faux fur vest and drawstring jogger integrate effortlessly into the line. The color palette consists of chalk, ecru, tan and black complemented by powdered shades of ice blue and blush pink.
For men, it’s an amplification of individuality. Silhouettes are neat, lean and narrow. The layered, black skinny polo neck is the uniform staple of the season. Slim fit suits in micro optical wool patterns are worn with modernist black ties.
Effortlessly dressed up with off-kilter classics; the peacoat in bonded textured wool with a high-neck and raw edges; the crew sweater reworked in graphic mini and macro jacquards; the biker updated in nylon with a fur collar; the blazer, raw cut in felted knit; the dress pant in knit heather mélange; and the faux washed leather aviator.
Looks are precise and polished with a careless insouciance. Dark rich colors of Bordeaux, deep navy and forest green are paired with graphic blacks and tones of grey, with flashes of cobalt blue adding depth and dimension.
