ck: reloaded

As part of Calvin Klein’s continuing evolution, the label has committed to working with different creatives to help tell its story. The first step towards that vision is the collaboration with Been Trill co-founder Heron Preston, who has taken the brand’s most necessary, iconic wardrobe staples – the underwear, the white shirt, the jeans – and reinterpreted them to create a minimalist, sustainable collection. Baseline pieces are elevated by attention to detail and unexpected touches (simple silhouettes are cut with precision; raised ribbing and stitching creates an almost 3D effect), and the collection’s unisex approach gives a season-transcending, inclusive feel. Says Preston: ‘I wanted to find a universal language. One that doesn’t alienate but invites you into this world of simplicity, removing complexity and allowing you to discover your own…

In the study of her Brooklyn home, Ana Matronic keeps a special shelf above her desk for volumes on the history of disco. Anticipating her ambassadorial role for the forthcoming V&A Dundee exhibition, Night Fever: Designing Club Culture, she has been brushing up on the classics. She recently polished off The Fabulous Sylvester, Joshua Gamson’s definitive biography of the vanguard disco pioneer. Sylvester played their final ace in the pack best, specifying from their deathbed the make-up artist who would dress their corpse, at 41. In Tim Lawrence’s Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor, Ana noted a rumour that the patients who died earliest from AIDS were referred to as The Saints, in honour of their favoured East Village, Manhattan nightclub. ‘Probably not true,’ she says. But…

There is never a bad time to show righteous acts of allyship – until they become tinged with hypocrisy. The pandemic changed the way we protest forever. In the 2010s, righteous marches were organised by Black Lives Matter to protest the deaths of innocent Black men like Trayvon Martin in 2012, and Eric Garner in 2014. Yet in the wake of the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and more last year, activism largely went online. The collective reckoning that followed was incredibly galvanising – and unprecedented. Social media was flooded with hashtags that rightfully insisted we #SayTheirNames. Hashtags helped to raise millions for organisations like the NAACP and Campaign Zero, and were a valuable organising tool for the marches that did happen IRL. But some of the hashtagging was troubling.…

If you like your watches precise and your cars fast, this is the collaboration for you. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, luxury British watch brand Bremont has released a limited-edition box set featuring a chronograph (60 in green and 60 in grey) and a rally timer. With a black dial that nods to the design of the E-Type’s gauges, bezel and strap colours that match the E-Type 60 Edition’s Pantone shades, a hardened stainless steel case, treated steel hands and a 22mm leather strap, the timepiece is as glamorous as the car that inspired it. And here’s something to really make your engine purr: every box set comes with a unique driving experience hosted by Jaguar Classic – so you can slip on your watch,…

Let your imagination take flight this summer with a series of ‘cosmic’ pop-up stores in cities around the world, unveiling Dior’s ‘hyperreal’ Fall 2021 menswear collection designed by Kim Jones in collaboration with American artist Kenny Scharf. This May, the Selfridges Corner Shop in London is hosting an immersive experience where characters from Scharf’s universe (inspired by cartoons, surrealism and sci-fi) are brought to life amidst décor that references the collection’s futuristic virtual catwalk presentation. Whether you go for pieces featuring Scharf’s vibrant motifs in jacquards and subtle seed-stitch embroidery by Chinese artisans – such as these ‘JoJo’-print sneakers in technical fabric – or a tailored jacket or coat adorned with moiré silk, one thing’s for sure – you’ll look like a work of art.…
