Milan Fashion Week Menswear AW15: Calvin Klein
Fifty shades of grey
With a strong electronic beat setting the show's musical tone, Calvin Klein's Autumn/Winter 15 offerings can be encapsulated in one word: Cool. The show started off with an array of black and grey ensembles with a strong focus on sharp tailoring and key pieces you can rely on for everyday wear and tear – the American label's forte.
Black leather baseball caps were seen with a grey snow leopard print on knit sweaters and long jackets with futuristic style military boots, while shiny patent leather made up most of the collection's youthful pieces. Along with skinny trousers and tidy jumpers, outerwear was also a main theme for AW15 as Italo Zucchelli, Klein's menswear creative director, presented a variety of bomber jackets, some in in varying grey wools and others in black patent leather with fur collars – think The Flyboys meets The Matrix.
Never a disappointment on the menswear front, Calvin Klein's AW15 collection was a perfect curation of rich fabrics, minimalist detailing and modern-day wearability.
