MILAN, Jun 22, 2014/ — Unveiling his Spring 2015 menswear collection for Calvin Klein Collection, Italo Zucchelli, Men’s Creative Director for the brand proposed graphic lines and bright hues to make a bold statement for the season.
A sharp palette of summery, high energy brights that are grounded with essential neutrals and modernized with layers of transparency dominated the collection. A sporty yet elegant simplicity pervades in updated versions of classic menswear pieces.
The silhouettes are soft as seen in the lightweight and lightly textured cotton tanks and t shirts that are rounded and curved.
Layering is encouraged with the use of transparent blousons and jackets. Some layers are purposefully neutral, while others are more richly hued for a more vibrant pop of color.
The bomber, lightly quilted in mesh and softly padded, is tailored to hit just above the waist, often with a peek of color or skin. Following last season, pants are slim and lean and offered in cotton tech stretch and bonded wool, always with a turned up cuff. Suiting is refreshed by mixing colors and fabrications for fresh combinations. The double breasted peak lapel tuxedo, modernized yet elegant, with a statement monochromatic or contrasting stripe on the trouser side seam.
And exclusive to the show were 11 models, including American model Clark Bockelman, who is currently featured in the brands’ Fall 2014 advertising campaign; Filip Hrivnak, who opened and closed the show, and French Canadian actor Pier-Gabriel Lajoie.
