Calvin Klein Collection in Milan Gives Us a Refined Athletic Look in Shades of Grey
Today on Fashion One, we bring you Calvin Klein Collection from Milan Fashion Week for autumn/winter 2015-16.
Italo Zucchelli the creative director of the Calvin Klein Collection spoke to Fashion One about his inspiration and thoughts on his creations for the upcoming season. Zucchelli tells us the basic theme was old black and white movies with no color and everything is seen in shades of grey. He also considers grey to be the quintessential Calvin Klein color and used a whole range of shades from charcoal to heather grey.
Textures were also important with vinyl fabrics giving a modern, sleek and polished appearance as well as the designer’s first foray into animal print with embossed printed fabric. There was a wide selection of outerwear with mid length overcoats, capes, short bomber jackets and vinyl parkas with fur lined hoods. A cap and the classic Calvin Klein simplicity kept an athletic look refined and elegant.
The slightly high-waisted fit of trouser with a lower crotch gave a retro feel, especially when teamed with 50s style flight jackets with dyed sheepskin lapels, worn with boots this look was part military and part motorcycle greaser, all mixed in with chic minimalism.
