Drake dressed by Klein

Published 24/10/2013


Drake will be dressed by Calvin Klein on his tour.

The stage outfits have been specifically selected to fit into three separate categories that will be showcased on his 39-city tour of North America.

The first is based on a photographic print depicting clouds and blue skies; another utilises high-tech fabrics with neon details and reflective accents, and the third is all denim.

"I love Drake - he is very talented and I like his effortless attitude in terms of his style and music," men's creative director at Calvin Klein Italo Zucchelli told WWD.

Drake was spotted at the Calvin Klein Spring/ Summer 2014 after party during New York Fashion Week last month.

The fashion house used the bash to launch their new fragrance Downtown Calvin Klein, and other stars in attendance included Pharrell Williams and Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgård.

Drake isn't the first singing superstar to have his whole wardrobe designed exclusively by a top fashion house.

Kaye West's Yeezus tour looks have been created by Maison Marti Margiela.

Kanye's outfits include ten couture pieces, 20 ready-to-wear items and an exclusive pair of trainers.

Also making an appearance will be four striking head-encasing masks that Kanye wears throughout the shows; one studded, one tiled, one mirrored and one jewel-embellished.

These are a staple item from the French-based fashion house's haute couture collection.

"The base of the masks is made of black silk gauze, a transparent material that allow models to see through it," a Margiela spokesperson explained to "It's essential that this transparent material be in black and not white, because white becomes opaque."
