Last week the fashion community got some shocking news! Raf Simmons announced that he is leaving his position at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC after only 2 years. There has been much speculation surrounding the departure, but it seems to boil down to creative differences. During his time at the brand, Raf amped up the otherwise tired brand. Playing with the idea of the American man (or woman). Inspired by American Horror films, using the silhouette of Brooke Shields, playing around with the idea of safety and sanitation, Raf Simmons brought a new cutting edge look to the brand. So what does this mean for the Brand now? Because the departure was such a shock, the brand has no replacement for Simmons, meaning there will not be a show at next seasons New York Fashion Week.

Let’s take a look back on some of Raf’s most memorable menswear moments at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC.
