Just because Chinese New Year is going to be a more toned-down affair this year does not mean that you need to zap away the joy of dressing up for the festive season.
Hitting that perfect spot between looking fashionable and being comfortable for the festivities in this new normal? Some Y2K-inflicted streetwear ought to do the trick, which is why the Chinese New Year capsule line by American fashion giant Calvin Klein Inc should be on your CNY shopping list.
The collection – which spans the company’s Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Underwear and Calvin Klein Performance lines – is big on easy-to-match wardrobe separates all imbued with just the right dose of street swagger. Think bralettes, boxy T-shirts and stonewashed jeans.
Chinese singer, rapper and dancer Xin Liu adds star power (and cool) to the Calvin Klein Chinese New Year capsule campaign.
To give the pieces a special touch for the auspicious occasion, several of the brand’s classic designs have been reinterpreted. Cue a yellow hoodie that comes with an overlay detail in front and nylon woven panels along the hem. Or a fire engine-red sweater with feminine puff sleeves that goes perfect with the pleated asymmetrical midi skirt with the brand’s iconic logo waistband.
To pay homage to the the Year Of The Ox, Calvin Klein has also roped in Helsinki-based illustrator Janine Rewell – known for her fantastical, colour-drenched geometric animal forms – to put a graffiti-meets-Cubist spin on the bull motif in bold shades of red, yellow and blue.
Fortune favours the bold – so opt for these streetwear-inspired designs for your CNY wardrobe.
Calvin Klein’s creative spin on the animal motif also extends to how it’s incorporated the creature with the ‘CK’ monogram on the back of a denim trucker jacket and as a print on tees and sweaters. Now that’s how you take the bull by the horns in unprecedented times.
Below, we highlight some of the items you ought to cop from this limited-edition collection.
