Raf started bringing V-neck back with his knit pieces when he arrived at Calvin Klein. In a time where nobody would do it, he did it and mastered it to full profession, which is made clear with pieces like that. The material of this sweater is much thicker and stiffer than most of his other knit pieces, but that does no harm to the piece itself as the fit is still very adjustable. After all his amazing knit pieces he brought out, it is no wonder that Grailed's Survey about what would become archival fashion in the future, set Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Knitwear on the top position.
After a year of Raf Simon’s debut at Calvin Klein, he presented one of our favorite fashion shows of the last decade, 205W39NYC Fall Winter 2018. From the extraordinary runway that had a floor filled with real Popcorn to some of the most thought-out knitwear he ever designed, everything about it made this collection a huge evolution of Raf and his idea of Calvin Klein.
"This collection is an evolution of my idea of Calvin Klein – of a view onto American society – but now wider, universal. It’s an allegory for a meeting of old worlds and new worlds, relating to the discovery of America, the 1960’s Space Race, and the twenty-first century information age. Reflecting the notion of democracy, there is no cultural hierarchy: the mixes emancipate clothing and references from their meanings, from their own narratives, and collage them to discover something different – a different dream. More than anything else, this collection is about freedom. A word that defines America, and Calvin Klein” – Raf
