CK Calvin Klein UK Launch

You've heard of Calvin Klein, but have you heard of CK Calvin Klein? Perhaps.. but chances are that you have not shopped there. CK Calvin Klein is yet another diffusion line part of the super-brand's global domination strategy. 

CK Calvin Klein bridges the gap between Calvin Klein (NYC Fashion Week etc. etc.) and CK Jeans (at your local out-of-town shopping village). The first UK CK Calvin Klein store is opening it's doors in Manchester's new shopping desination The Avenue at Spinningfields and I was there to sup the champers.

If you follow me on Twitter (and yes, you should) you'll no doubt have seen my tweets last Thursday night declaring my innate predictability concerning what to wear to the shin-dig. Of course I wore Calvin Klein (no, not CK Calvin Klein, the store have only just opened, keep up). 

I got the shirt whilst shopping in NYC, as you do and before you ask no this shirt is a little more TKMaxx than Fifth Avenue (see my blog about Century21 Department Store/discount Mecca here).

Anywho when paired with Adam's trusty Wrangler skinny jeans and my new 80s retro flattop I was looking rather swish. I say flat top... it's not exactly a flat top, more a series of flat tops... I think my hairdresser was pissed.

Oh, the clothes: CK Calvin Klein's SS11 menswear line was very new-tral and earthy, i.e., exactly like the Calvin Klein shirt I was wearing! Bang on trend. (don't call me Gok).
