Italo Brings it Back

Comments | | Print

(NEW YORK) Ladies and gentleman, he's back. Today, Calvin Klein Collection has announced that Italo Zucchelli will once again show his men's runway show in New York in February 2010. This marks the second time that the CFDA's 2009 Menswear Designer of the Year will show a full runway collection in New York; he showed Fall 2009 in the city last February before returning to Milan for Spring 2010. The upcoming February show will take place on the ground floor of the brand's 39th Street headquarters, where Francisco Costa traditionally shows his women's collections.

"Showing  in New York last February was extremely successful, in  terms  of  the response from both editors and retailers,” said Zucchelli in a statement.  “I  felt  very  welcomed  and  I am looking forward   to  doing  it  again.  As Calvin  Klein is the quintessential  American  brand  with  a significant European base,  I  think that it’s an important statement of relevance that we are able to show the men’s collection in these two very important global fashion capitals.”
