Calvin Klein by Raf Simons unveiled



Calvin Klein By Appointment

The first looks for Calvin Klein by Raf Simons and Pieter Mulier have been unveiled. A newly created By Appointment line of 14 made-to-measure pieces were revealed on Instagram, an eclectic array of gowns, separates and tailoring designed to show the breadth of availability and that Calvin Klein isn’t just about “iconic underwear and jeans”.

Underpinning the collection is an Americana theme celebrating cheerleaders and debutantes, and the By Appointment collection is aimed at anyone (with money), not just celebs and V.I.Ps. Revealing a few of the look book images on Instagram in tile formation, there was still a nod to the most famous CK creation of all, a pair of logo waistband tighty whities.

Me? I’m all about these red tailored boy-cut pants. Need to see more please…

Farewell, Sonia Rykiel



What sad news about designer Sonia Rykiel, who passed away yesterday at the age of 86 after a long illness with Parkinson’s disease.
