Introducing CALVIN KLEIN JEANS EST. 1978
A bold new vision of the foundations of American style, fusing the timeless iconography of CALVIN KLEIN’s legacy with the codes of youth culture. The offering takes high-impact cues from streetwear, juxtaposing graphic elements with quintessential, all-American archetypes (the trucker jacket, the white tee), through Raf Simons’ eye for CALVIN KLEIN.
Familiar silhouettes for men and women find new life in a dense, all-over silhouette pattern after Richard Avedon’s storied 1980 image of Brooke Shields, or cinematic photo prints of cowboys, barns, and midwestern plains. Quintessentially American motifs—eagles, flags, buffalos, and more—become bold and evocative graphic prints atop everyday staples of printed denim, T-shirts, hoodies and more. As relevant as it is authentic, CALVIN KLEIN JEANS EST. 1978 serves as both a distillation of youthful visual vocabulary, and manifesto of a new era, a new generation of CALVIN KLEIN.
