Calvin Klein Collection Autumn-Winter 2013-2014 menswear collection. Creative director Italo Zucchelli modified sportswear and tailored formal wear – and mixed it together.

I have fun every day. The people who work with me work with me for twelve years, nine years, [because] we are in fun, we’re here together. When you do a creative thing, it’s so important, because then people will give you 100 percent. When you’re working in an atmosphere that is conducive to being creative, to creating things—fashion thrives on that.

I have to say, a lot of people that come to my office, the first thing they say is, “My God, this office has such a great energy!””
