CALVIN KLEIN FALL 2016 Men's & Women's Fashion Presentation features the men’s and women's Fall 2016 Calvin Klein apparel, jeans, underwear, performance and accessories. The Fall 2016 lines was presented within an installation that echoed the warmth and sensuality of a hotel lobby, where an eclectic crowd of individuals from all walks of life intersect. Rebellious, subversive and sensual. Presenting men’s and women’s Calvin Klein apparel, jeans, underwear, performance and accessories for Fall 2016. An empowering interpretation of the brand’s iconic staples reimagined for today’s generation of nonconformists.
Men’s Calvin Klein Platinum. Rebel sport, retro athletic. Expanded, exaggerated and intensified, fusing 90’s minimalism, sport elements and punk details into a modern, layered and unexpected uniform. A youthful and rebellious attitude combines in a color palette of dusty powder blues, deep bordeaux and dark forest, merging with signature black, navy, grey mélange and chalk. The hues clash unexpectedly to create graphic, new looks. Soft nappa biker silhouettes in colored skins are juxtaposed with mixed media hardware and plastic in amplified zippers and silver snaps. Circular ring snaps are key, including multi-element zip detailing throughout.
High-density embroideries outline edges and details, while heavy and soft top-stitching are applied to tailoring and shirts. Maximized or minimized geometric jacquards combine in shirtings and knits, and are injected into prints and graphics. Milano stripe and graphic rib trims punctuate knits and sweaters. Athletic track jackets and straight leg vintage-inspired track pants lend to this casual cool look. Spacer jerseys are key in an array of silhouettes from outerwear to sweatshirts to pants. Printed sculptural jerseys create graphic dimension.
Styling is multi-layered; zip up bombers in wool or leather and stripe trim cardigans are worn over zip up high neck tops, and paired with wool overcoats in jacquard patterns and slim track pants tucked in to lace-up athletic boots. Women’s Calvin Klein Platinum. Soft 80’s punk and 90’s attitudes are fused in subversive soft pale colors of powder grey, dusty pink, pale blue; unexpected pops of crimson or crystal blue; and punctuated by crisp black and white. Jacquard fabrics are bold and graphic macro grids clash with distorted micro zig-zags creating a rush of movement and texture. Smooth nappa leather is punctured with silver grommets.
Soft stretch viscose is given a tough edge adorned with embroidered holes. Circularity continues into hardware, including oversized metal ring snaps, horn button detailing and large circular horn belt buckles, incorporated into tops and bottoms two at a time. Styling is layered, with skinny knits, plaited rib viscose or plush cashmere sweaters worn under dresses and separates alike. Top layers have the illusion of being recklessly slashed, when zippers that wrap around the body are worn open. Outerwear layers are luxe, in soft shearling, alpaca and cashmere.
Calvin Klein Underwear. Unrestrained sensuality. For her, Calvin Klein Tease explores feminine contours with bodysuits and bralettes rendered in a graphic animal lace with lightweight open net mesh and provocative cut out details. An updated seamless offering assures ultimate comfort in super soft, 360° stretch fabric by incorporating the iconic bold logo with seamless technology.
For him, the newly launched Calvin Klein Liquid Cotton and Calvin Klein Liquid Micro lines offer print and solid underwear in a silky soft, lightweight cotton or microfiber weave with a logo waistband. Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Stretch recolors signature silhouettes with striking waistbands in diversified, primary hues.
The new Calvin Klein Sculpted Jean is introduced for him and her in a full range of washes and performance stretch denim that amplifies and defines through innovative, flexible fabric and clean, architectural seaming. Distinctive, iconic stitching using new elastic tech thread – a carefully engineered tilted top block with angled pockets in signature omega stretch – lifts, sculpts, supports, lengthens and enhances the physique with movement and comfort.
Effortless cool meets maximum comfort in a thoroughly modern proposition of athleisure. The pieces embody clean sensuality, with body-conscious shapes and bra tops paired with sonic quilting crop jackets. The monochromatic palette is laced with graphic prints and pops of sulphur yellows, bright corals and electric blue. Updated for fall, functional features are fluidly tailored into street-ready silhouettes, showcasing the lithe jersey of the single-pleat slim-fit pants and innovative fabric of the casual bomber jackets.
Futuristic elements are incorporated into paneled down jackets with asymmetrical zip detailing and contrasting white and black mesh backpacks. The new line establishes athleticism as a lifestyle, bridging the aesthetics of ready-to-wear and activewear.
Calvin Klein Platinum Accessories. Disruptive and experimental, the new series plays with the boundaries of duality, highlighting the apposition of architectural lines and sinuous curves. Alluding to art, the minimalist shades are punctuated by a signature brush stroke print and bold amplified tones.
The collision of elements continues in the silhouettes of supple leathers interposed by crisp contrasting edges and high-shine hardware. Unafraid to eschew traditional femininity, the pieces are awash in punches of jewel greens and blues among the muted nudes and cream. The elegant top handles and flared folds of Italian leather totes are offset by exaggerated chain links that reinterpret sophistication.
For him, masculinity is expressed in the connection between nature and technology. Retaining the luxe texture of sturdy leather and suede, the utilitarian edge is resolute in the polished chrome and signature carabiner. Duffles and backpacks come in structured shapes seamed with overlarge chrome details.
Unabashedly reclaiming the sensuous tones of bordeaux for men, the restrained warmth effortlessly balances the cooler platinum and slate greys. Internal padded pockets lined with bonded ultrasuede provide support for all technology needs.
