If there’s one designer that knows how to expertly twist and turn various reference points into one collection, it’s Raf Simons. For spring 2019, he merged together two classic American films, Jaws and The Graduate, into a crazy summer wardrobe for the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC customers. Where in the fashion world would you find shark-bit pleated skirts, scuba gear casual wear, and frantically-draped 1960s-esque cocktail dresses, with some accessorized with graduation robes and caps? The show was peppered with intentionally obvious reference points to 20th-century American Cinematic culture to portray an ironic yet strict sense of humor that Simons is known for. It’s a captivating display into the imaginations of a fashion genius, and makes for retail gold as well!
