Calvin Klein Fall 2018 - Runway Review
February 13, 2018
At Calvin Klein, Raf Simons has showgoers braving the apocolypse on a massive bed of popcorn. Yes, popcorn. Three semi trucks worth, to be exact. Ankle-deep floors of popcorn, a subtle nod to Klein's earliest advertising campaign at movie theaters, set the stage for a Fall 2018 collection that mimicked an otherworldly trip to outer space. Simons called it his view of "American society... a reflection on the notion of democracy where there is no cultural hierarchy." Metallic and orange ensembles in the essence of space suits came down the runway, the models's heads protected by knits. An apocalyptic soundtrack complimented an old red farm backdrop, in front of which wafted flowy, plaid and quilted dresses, oversized furs, sheer silk ensembles and translucent fashions.
