It seems only fitting to mention the work of James Turrell when talking about this season’s Calvin Klein collection. Turrell is an artist who sculpts with light and explores ideas concerning space and proportion. The same could be said for Italo Zuccheli’s latest offering.
Much like Turrell’s recent work at the MoMa PS1 space in New York – a hole in the ceiling that exposes the sky and its shadows – Zuccheli gave us a peep show of the sky through a series of bold prints and blue garments. There were some sportswear references too this season, particularly in a series of block coloured bomber jackets and oversized sweatshirts. Classic tailoring appeared in a number of blue suits, referencing the precision and minimalism so closely associated to the house of Calvin Klein. However it really was this seasons brightly coloured prints that pushed the collection into a new realm. Zuccheli presenting his interpretation of the sky through a hypnotic mix of acid-trip meets sunset prints.
