Pushing the Boundaries

So I'm a bit slow of the mark here, a bit like Australia in the Olympics, but I recently laid eyes on some of the coolest threads in person. It was the Calvin Klein collection from Spring or something, but what the collection had done was something atleast a year ahead of itself.

The first thing that caught my eye was this raffia or crepe like blazer that somehow kept its shape and density whilst still being the lightest piece of cloth ever. I'm not sure how it would go in real life conditions but it's an idea great for some tailored, thicker jacket with a twist. Then the range got better.

From the reddest Jackets to meshed, heavy polos and some sort of gortex/cycling apparel button down shirt. I think Calvin Klein is very under-rated now. People forget there is more than just jocks and socks to the brand.

This has prompted a post because I saw a week back, the Sartorialist post a snap of a mesh/ layered blazer being rocked by some guy on Wall Street.

Of course, if I could find the collection shots I would have added them in here but I'm yet to.

C/K collection and the photo, I believe, are a sign of things to come for menswear: rather than haute couture mens lines, lines that push the boundaries but still remain highly accessible.
