Raf Simons Treads In Dangerous (Shark Infested!) Waters for His Spring 2019 Calvin Klein Collection

Fresh off the runway. 


Raf Simons once again probed the darker side of America for his latest Calvin Klein collection, Past seasons saw the Belgian designer explore the American West and the prairie, and this season, he explores '60s California surf culture and horror film. 

The venue, from the runway to the lighting, was bathed in bright blood-red. Jaws T-shirts (complete with CK branding) - inevitably the must-have street style item for next season - were paired with tie-dyed neoprene wetsuits, worn pulled down as if the models just hopped off their surf boards. 

There were an assortment of '60s-inspired silk shift dresses, and thick fisherman knits over pleated print skirts. To top it all off? Graduation caps, which showed up on the runway mere hours before at Vacquera. If three's a trend two at least seems to be kind of consensus on the fashion industry's parallels to high school.
