While Raf Simons’s first collection for Calvin Klein was sure to cause a social-media storm, no one piece stirred as much Instagram interest as the yellow plastic-covered wrap coat he sent down the runway on model Julia Nobis. Perfect for yesterday’s snowstorm (and those yet to come), it’s a functional, statement-making topper. As one of the few solid primary-colored looks in the collection, it stood out from the full denim outfits and sheer tops. The decision to render a fur coat more utilitarian and futuristic by covering it in plastic was a smart move on Simons’s part: There is perhaps nothing more sad than a sopping-wet fur. Fashion favorites Bryan Boy and Man Repeller posted about it on Instagram, and the coat garnered close to 30,000 likes after it was posted on Calvin Klein’s brand account.
