Heron Preston and Calvin Klein have teamed up for a second collaboration offering up a selection of streetwear-inspired, essentials with a purpose. The designer honors the DNA of Calvin Klein with a modern perspective in sustainably-sourced materials, and elements of future-forward tailoring, playful texture and color, overstated simplicity, and oversized silhouettes.
“For Fall, it was about introducing new materials and dissected, timeless essentials that are interesting,” said Preston. “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.”
The Season 2 campaign celebrates youth culture and is lensed by award-winning director and filmmaker Ricky Saiz. The cast of culture leaders represent the next generation and the new world they are creating, fronted by the great 90’s rapper Nas.
The collection’s knits and denim in the collection are made from organic cotton, along with the use of recycled polyester and recycled nylons. Preston honors lived experience in his concept and reintroduces cult-favorite, versatile CK pieces: bralettes, plush cotton french terry joggers, waffle thermal knits, linen shirt jackets, and puffer jackets. His palette is subdued and natural of blue, yellow, brown, light gray, white, and black.
