London-based skateboarding brand PALACE and American fashion house CALVIN KLEIN collaborated on CK1 Palace capsule collection. The collection explores Calvin Klein‘s classic pieces such as jeans, sweatshirts, underwear, t-shirts, and even CK1 fragrance with Palace‘s urban touch. Fashion photographer Alasdair McLellan captured the campaign featuring Dame Joan Collins, Willem Dafoe, Pet Shop Boys, Unknown T, Lucien Clarke, Kyle Wilson, Charlie Birch, Jah Brown, Torey Goodall, Adwoa Aboah, Lourdes Leon, Precious Lee, Savannah Keenan, Elise, and Saskia Jesson. Styling is work of Max Pearmain. In charge of beauty were hair stylist Anthony Turner, makeup artists Diane Kendal, and Lynsey Alexander, and manicurists Lorraine Griffin, and Megumi Yamamoto.
With an ad campaign lineup full of so many iconic people, you know this collaboration is almost too good to be true. While you may be a huge fan of Calvin Klein and wouldn’t be caught dead without your Calvin’s on, this collaboration is one worth splurging on. Limited edition collections like this are not only an investment in your wardrobe, but they always retain their value and increase over time too. If the price point is out of your range, you could always budget for a new piece from the collection or put it on credit, and it’s worth the interest.
In the same way, you don’t question Calvin Klein cologne price, and you shouldn’t on the clothing either. Investing in high-quality cologne and apparel is an investment in yourself – which always pays for itself in spades. As Lindsay said in Arrested Development, “A small price to pay for self-esteem, Michael.”
