Effortless elegance. Luxe minimalism. Understated sexiness. Just a few terms that come to mind when you think of the Calvin Klein aesthetic. They’re also perfect descriptions for the new women’s Calvin Klein Performance line which has just landed here in Australia. To say we’ve been excited about the arrival of Calvin KleinPerformance here at Sporteluxe HQ would be something of an understatement. Totally obsessed would probably be more accurate!

A few months ago our directors Bianca and Sarah were lucky enough to meet Kevin Carrigan, Calvin Klein’s Global Creative Director, and the sartorial genius behind the active line. Kevin is a total fitness and wellness devotee himself (he revealed to us that he’d even planned a detour to his fave Balinese health retreat, COMO Shambhala, as part of his trip to Australia) and Kevin’s passion for active living is evident in even the tiniest details of the offering.

Calvin Klein Performance features clean lines, classic cuts and colour palettes that complement the active lifestyles of today’s modern woman,” explains Kevin. “All are designed with a modern, minimal and functional point of view.”

From jackets to vests, tights to tanks, shorts to slim-fit pants, Calvin Klein Performance covers the whole sporty spectrum.

Here are six of Sporteluxe’s must-have Calvin Klein Performance pieces.

Although if we’re totally honest the whole collection is on our wish list!

Calvin Klein Performance

Calvin Klein Performance

Three-quarter Sleeve Ruched Jacket in Nectarine, $99.95

The perfect post workout cover-up, we love the bold tangerine, clever moisture-wicking fabric and flattering ruched detailing.

Calvin Klein Performance

Solid Basketweave Strap Tank in Aruba, $69.95

We love the functional fabric, in-built sports bra and the fresh turquoise hue. However, our fave feature of this tank is the intricate woven racer back detailing. It looks seriously sexy but has been engineered for performance.

Calvin Klein Performance

Colourblock  Reflective Tank in Neon Mint, $79.95

What’s not to love about a colour-pop tank that visually streamlines your waist with clever contrasting side panels?! The reflective panels also make it perfect for early morning or evening runs.


Calvin Klein Performance

Slim Fit Soft Jogger Pant in Milk $89.95

Just like the perfect pair of jeans, flattering track pants can be really hard to find. Which is why we’re obsessed with these slim-fit grey marl pants. The clever double waistband gives you the comfort of an elastic waist but keeps things sophisticated by concealing it with a relaxed fold over with the top. Genius! Up the cool factor even more by rolling up the hem.
