The arrival of Raf Simons to Calvin Klein has brought an air of American revolution. The brand has been invaded by novelties, so much to the taste of the Belgian designer: change of logo, custom clothing line, By Appointment, and alliance with the Foundation for the Visual Arts, the legacy of Andy Warhol.
Now, Warhol becomes leitmotiv. The artist's face as he showed it in his self-portraits with Polaroid reaches his most casual line, Calvin Klein Jeans, where he appears in 18 garments ranging from T-shirts, sweatshirts, back jeans pockets, jackets to sneakers and even small ones bags, with prices between 50 and 180 euros.
In this line, Calvin Klein Jeans takes part of his consecrated work and turns it into part of basic pieces of clothing, suitable for the day-to-day battle. If Warhol brought new objects to the spaces of art, CK takes art to new spaces and surfaces, like basic sweatshirts. Well thought, pop art, flows hand in hand with no problem.
