Calvin Klein Jeans and luxury e-commerce site mytheresa.com have relaunched the brand’s 1990s classics, including T-shirts, overalls, sweatshirts, and jean jackets. These were more than just standard casual-wear pieces—they characterised the visual universe created by photographer Herb Ritts and starring Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg. They epitomised both heroine-chic minimalism and sporty nonchalant in formalism, but above all, CK Jeans has dressed the DGAF attitude.

The reissue is loud with generational nepotism: Lottie Moss, Kate’s half sister, is the face of the campaign, which is photographed by Michael Avedon, Richard’s grandson. “The capsule is all about nostalgia for the 90s and that whole look feeling very right again,” said Calvin Klein Jean’s Global Creative Director, Kevin Carrigan. It’s both sexy and apathetic, conjuring a line from the 1990s classic Groundhog’s Day, starring Bill Murray: “Well, what if there’s no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today.”

  • BLAU JOB

    This October, BLAU - the German-speaking world’s highest-circulation art magazine - launched its English-language version. “We believe in the transformative power of art, that not everything is interesting and urgent, and that you needn’t speak with everyone and be everywhere," says editor-in-chief Cornelius Tittel. "We consciously run the risk of missing out on the occasional shooting star born after 1989. But that leaves us time to take a new look at old masters." 032c sits down with Tittel in the magazine's Berlin Kurfürstendamm HQ. More
