THE 1ST CALVIN KLEIN EYEWEAR COLLECTION BY RAF SIMONS IS HERE


Posted on June 14th, by Dominique in magazine, style. 1 Comment

Our fellow countryman Raf Simons, who took home both Mens- and Womenswear Designer of the Year 2017 CFDA Awards for his collections at Calvin Klein a little while ago, also got graced with a very first “Ultima” last night. The “Ultimas” are the revamped Flemish awards commending outstanding cultural accomplishments. Simons received one that can be viewed as a lifetime achievement award.

As Chief Creative Officer of Calvin Klein -he oversees the whole entire brand-, Simons of course is also in charge of curating classic and designing brand new eyewear. And now we get a first look at an entirely new line named after the street address of the Calvin Klein HQ, “CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC” and it boasts some really innovative design. 

My favourite (although I’m absolutely obsessed with the shades from the “Calvin Klein-collection” seen in the campaign image on top) is the CK8057S model. These rectangle-shaped shades with two-toned lenses are inspired by art deco and come in 4 different colour ways.

Below you’ll see the CK8578S sunglasses, another super sleek rectangle model, this time with a lowered metal line running all along it’s length. 

And the C8058S below has that same cool metal line running across a slightly rounder frame. It also comes in four different colour ways.

All these frames include titanium nose pads and are branded with the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC logo.  

More details on when and where to get the new CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC collection will follow soon.
