The Heron Preston for Calvin Klein collection is inspired by traditions of utility and performance, drawing attention to our most trusted wardrobe staples. In this collection Preston transcends seasons and style. “I just wanted to find a universal language that speaks to a global audience. One that doesn’t alienate but rather invites you in this world of simplicity, removing complexity and allowing you to discover your own style through the comfort and support of the garments.” – Heron Preston
Minimalism, sensuality, youth and freedom have always been at the core of Calvin Klein’s visual vocabulary, opting for timeless, now trademark details. Calvin Klein designs clothing by considering what is essential, what is necessary. Heron Preston for Calvin Klein embodies these ideals in a new collection defined by understated yet obsessive detail. Uncommon, yet universal.
Through a shared vision, Heron Preston and Calvin Klein created a collection for real people. Preston came in as a creative consultant, first examining what he considered the brand’s most necessary and iconic pieces: the underwear, the white shirt, and expanded from there, remaining firmly within the guardrails of what is essential – no more, no less.
Preston says, “This goes beyond just a normal collaboration. I call it a collaboration 2.0., as the work we did, and how we did it, goes beyond just product design and placement. We tried to reshape and develop a new business language, while still fully embracing and respecting Calvin Klein’s culture, experience and history.”
