Raf Simons debuted his second collection with Calvin Klein this season. Unlike his whimsical, airy designs with Dior in collections past, he is taking a more sinister approach this season inspired by Hollywood horror classics. Simons described the show as “American horror, American dreams” debuting looks with Warhol prints, gauze and rubber nightgowns, blood splatters and fringe. As nightmarish as the inspiration is the 79-piece collection is very wearable, classic and a fashionably honorable nod to the cult classics that shaped Hollywood horror.
Kaia Gerber, Cindy Crawford’s 16-year-old daughter, looked like a seasoned pro as she made her debut down the runway in front of the star-studded audience including Millie Bobby Brown, Paris Jackson and Mahershala Ali.
Raf Simons’ past two collections with Calvin Klein have been wildly successful and solidify the fact that his visions for the brand are unpredictably chic which has taken the classic American label to the next level.
