FIELD DAY. CK Calvin Klein updates retro styles from the ’90s with influences from sportswear and the Wild West.
Take a nylon woven jacket and layer it with a black trench coat, and you’ll get an athleisure look. Pair a baseball shirt with woven pants and Chelsea boots and you’ll have another look that is simultaneously casual and sporty, but also chic. Aside from making a great fashion statement, athleisure attire also offer incredible comfort. This comes mainly from the use of sportswear fabrics for both casual and smart pieces. All in all, this is what CK Calvin Klein’s spring/summer 2018 collection is all about.
Inspired by playfully retro fabrics and an early ’90s style, CK Calvin Klein spring/summer 2018 collection takes sportswear cues to complement any wardrobe. Case in Point: The handsome trench cotton overcoats, which is constructed with the brand’s signature bi-stretch, double-weave cotton that allows added comfort and extra movement.
Vice-versa, sportswear pieces are also infused with a heavy dose of street style and ’90s minimalism, as can been seen in dry, textual nylons, and padded white metal cottons. The luxury aspect, on the other hand, takes form in oversized outerwear, which is constructed in sateen and fitted to flawlessly mold your figure.
The ’90s influence also extends to the use of pop colors, offbeat stripes and daring yarn-dye that’ll zest up any simple look. One that’s particularly worth pointing out is the ’90s Manchester track style. In particular, the shiny nylon bomber jackets and color-block nylon popovers (a polo and oxford hybrid shirt)—a definite summer staple.
Wild Wild West
Of course, it wouldn’t be Calvin Klein without at least some pieces inspired by the brand’s home country, the United States of America. With this notion, CK Calvin Klein reintroduced a classic American silhouette dominated with mini-gingham paneled knits and plaids.
