The Fall 2018 CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC global advertising campaign suggests a new dawn is on the horizon. This season explores the familiar American landscape through an otherworldly lens, challenging the perception of the real and the imagined.
“The Fall 2018 collection is an allegory for a meeting of old worlds and new worlds, relating to the discovery of America, the 1960s Space Race, and the twenty-first century information age. Reflecting the notion of democracy, there is no cultural hierarchy: the mixes emancipate clothing and references from their meanings, from their own narratives, and collage them to discover something different – a different dream.”
— Raf Simons, Chief Creative Officer, CALVIN KLEIN
In a series of images lensed by Willy Vanderperre, a play of scale presents a juxtaposition between the clothing and the isolated Utah landscape, evoking a nostalgic yet otherworldly feeling. A sense of calm and hope are also present, capturing the ever-present theme of American youth.
