Calvin Klein, Inc. announced today that musician Drake will wear custom and runway pieces from Calvin Klein Collection during his 2013 North American tour performances beginning this evening at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.
Throughout the tour, Drake will wear an assortment of Calvin Klein Collection looks, designed by Italo Zucchelli, the brands’ Men’s Creative Director.
The collection of bomber jackets, hoodies, t shirts, tanks and pants were all designed to fit within three distinctive capsules. The first group incorporates a photographic print from Mr. Zucchelli’s Spring 2014 collection. Depicting clouds and vivid blue skies, the design evokes a similar feel to the cover artwork for Drake’s latest album, ‘Nothing Was the Same.’ The second set was inspired by Mr. Zucchelli’s signature innovative, ultra-modern design sensibility, incorporating hi-tech fabrics, neon details and reflective accents.
Drawing from the house’s legacy of iconic jeanswear, the third collection is based on head-to-toe denim.
Said Zucchelli, “I love Drake – he is very talented and I like his effortless attitude in terms of his style and music. It’s a perfect fit for me to work with him and I am very excited for him to wear my designs for his tour.”
In addition to wardrobing Drake for the tour and past red carpet events and appearances, Mr. Zucchelli has a long history of dressing top musicians, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Ne-Yo, John Legend, Bryan Adams, Joe Jonas, Jared Leto, Tyrese Gibson, Jamie xx (Jamie Smith), Tinie Tempah, Kid Cudi and Miguel, who opens for Drake on the North American tour.
