One of the 20th century’s most iconic brands was born in 1968, when aspiring designer Calvin Klein wheeled a rack of impeccably tailored coats up New York's 7th Avenue to meet with department store buyers. By the mid 1970s, Klein was winning accolades for his clean, modern sportswear. All at once bold, progressive, seductive, and refined, the brand’s modern incarnation, Calvin Klein 205 W39NYC, helmed by creative director Raf Simons, celebrates America’s unique legacy within global fashion. Chronicling and conflating decades of American style, the label explores the intersections of pragmatism and pop culture iconography. Culling elements from workwear, varsity uniforms, and Western wear alike, immaculate tailoring, streamlined eveningwear, and casual separates, including luxe knitwear, elevated staples, and signature jeans, advance an aesthetic of sensual minimalism.
