For its Fall/Winter 2018 campaign, stylish imprint CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC produces a hauntingly beautiful Americana fashion editorial that is packed with historical and cultural references. As the capsule marks the third installment of the brand's collaboration with Raf Simmons, the silhouettes are sophisticated and complicated.
The Americana fashion editorial is dubbed 'American Phantasm.' The overall narrative of the photoshoot feeds off of the dystopian connotations of abandoned roadside attractions — from a bygone Baby Boomer era "when Route 66 flourished as the main highway for vacationing tourists" to the extraterrestrial-obsessed and futuristic mindsets.
Essentially, the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC x Raf Simmons Fall/Winter 2018 collection is centered around the ideal of the American Dream and its lost, forgotten roots.
