One of the most highly-anticipated new fashion partnerships around the industry is Calvin Klein‘s ongoing collaboration with the Andy Warhol Foundation. The brand just dropped their colorful and dynamic lookbook for chief creative officer Raf Simons‘ Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2018 205W39NYC collection, and a vast array of artistic influences all come together for a refreshing launch of menswear and womenswear.
Famed pop artist Andy Warhol’s graphic black and white prints serve as a captivating jumping off point for this entire collection, which blends mod aesthetics with the classic tailoring the Calvin Klein brand is known for. The screen printed totes, dress shirts, and high boots are stand-out pieces that take style cues from the 1960s, but look ultra modern in the lookbook’s styling. Pro tip: you can shop some of the latest accessories from the collab on the brand’s website now, if you just can’t wait for the Pre-Fall pieces to arrive.
The Andy Warhol art prints are a pleasant contrast to another one of Calvin Klein’s ongoing partnerships: the knitwear collaboration with the American heritage brand Pendleton Woolen Mills. We have previously seen these vibrant, colorful, and graphic wools featured in the brand’s past family-centric #MyCalvins campaigns, draped on top stars like Kaia and Presley Gerber, Millie Bobby Brown, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, and more. Who would have thought these earthy tones and cozy garments would work so well paired with stark black and white accessories? Now, they feel fresh as slogan-printed cardigans, shawls, and pullovers for the Pre-Fall 2018 drop.
