NEW YORK, Oct 29, 2013/ — Musician Drake for his “Would You Like a Tour” performance last night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York wore Calvin Klein Collection on and off stage.
As previously announced, Drake will wear custom and runway pieces from Calvin Klein Collection throughout his 39-city North American arena tour, which kicked off on October 18th.
For last night’s performance, Drake wore a custom Calvin Klein Collection light blue denim hooded shirt with drawstring, tank top and multi pocket cargo pant, designed by Italo Zucchelli, the brands’ Men’s Creative Director, who was in attendance at the concert.
Drake later changed into a custom Calvin Klein Collection white cotton light reflective tank top and track pant.
The custom collection of bomber jackets, hoodies, t shirts, tanks and pants were all designed to fit within three distinctive capsules. Drawing from the house’s legacy of iconic jeanswear, the first collection is based on head-to-toe denim.
The second set was inspired by Mr. Zucchelli’s signature innovative, ultra-modern design sensibility, incorporating hi-tech fabrics, neon details and reflective accents. The third group incorporates a photographic print from Mr. Zucchelli’s Spring 2014 collection. Depicting clouds and vivid blue skies, the design evokes a similar feel to the cover artwork for Drake’s latest album, Nothing Was the Same.
Toronto native, rapper and singer, Drake is a Grammy Award winning artist who GQ named “Breakout of the Year” as part of the magazine’s annual “Men of the Year” issue in 2010. In 2013, he received his first Grammy Award for “Best Rap Album” for his second album, Take Care. His latest album, Nothing Was the Same, was released on September 24th of this year and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling over 650,000 copies in the first week.
