Calvin Klein has set the date for their Fall 2017 show: the second day of New York Fashion Week, 10th February. The brand have also chosen to merge their men’s and women’s lines, and will showcase them together. Both ready-to-wear collections and accessories will be on show. The brand is not the only fashion house to combine its womenswear and menswear into one show, with Bottega Veneta announcing yesterday they were set to do the same.

This will also be the first collection under new chief creative director Raf Simons, who was appointed in August after leaving Dior. He will be the first sole director since founder Calvin Klein left the role after its acquisition by Philips Van Heusen in 2002. The womenswear and menswear best place buy generic viagra online lines were previously helmed by Francisco Costa and Italo Zuchelli respectively, who left in April after 13 years at the brand. As well as Calvin Klein Collection, Simons will be in charge of Calvin Klein Platinum, Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Underwear, and Calvin Klein Home brands. He will also be showing his own menswear label’s new collection at New York Men’s Fashion Week on 1st February.

Last season Calvin Klein chose to hold private appointments instead of catwalk shows, so their return to the runway and the unveiling of Simons’ vision for the fashion house make this one of the most anticipated shows of the season.
