If Calvin Klein Swimwear’s latest collection had to be summed up in two words, they would be: sexy athleticism. Strong, streamlined shapes and classic swimwear silhouettes meet logo waistbands and sporty mesh detailing. There are shorts and trunks for him, and one and two-piece options for her. As with Calvin Klein’s campaign and its Sculpted Jean visuals, the swimwear shots have been taken by long time Raf Simons‘ collaborator Willy Vanderperre.
And as you’ve come to expect from the purveyor of sporty minimalism, the key styles – Intense Power (marked by bold logos), Intense Power Plus (with mesh fabrications) and Cutting Edge (characterised by layering and perforations) – come in black or white. Our picks: the black logo shorts that channel understated cool, and swim trunks with subtle details in the form of perforated fabric, a minimalist logo and a contrast drawstring.
