Raf Simons is continuing his exploration into modern-day America with the latest installment of his My Family campaign for Calvin Klein. First presented back in November, the brand's campaign shows off the SS18 collection. Shot by Willy Vanderperre, who photographed the last campaign, the familiar settings take on a new feel. The barn that once housed the Solange, A$AP Mob, and more recently the Kardashian sisters' campaigns, has now turned slightly sadistic.

As the collection saw stab wound dresses and Friday the 13th inspired heels, the choice to go ominous seemed to be an obvious one. Featuring models dressed in blood red gowns carrying around buckets of baseball bats, the creepy tone is cushioned by the incorporation of Warhol prints. The brand recently announced they will continue their partnership with the artist’s foundation until 2020.

Simons is set to show his FW18 collection for Calvin Klein next week, as well as the latest collection for his own label, his first time showing his independent label during New York Fashion Week. See the latest Calvin campaign below.
