Raf Simons presented his sophomore collection for Calvin Klein Spring 2018 taking inspiration from age-old American horror films. And yes, we asked the same question — why so sinister?
"Fashion tries to hide the horror and embrace on beauty. But they are both part of life. This collection is a celebration of that: a celebration of American life." said the Belgian chief creative officer himself.
On the runway, painted coats, satin western shirts, and Andy Warhol photograph motif-prints were the crux of what he had to offer. Other dresses were all plastic fringe, like cheerleaders' pompoms while some purses were hung with toyful perfume bottle-shaped charms emblazoned with the name of the famous CK fragrance, "Obsession", an American icon of its own sort.
Model-of-the-moment Kaia Gerber (daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford) also made her runway modelling debut, opening the show on a good strutted note. She joins the likes of It-model Kendall Jenner who did her first runway show during New York Fashion Week in 2014.
