Calvin Klein Collection showed their Spring 2016 collection in Milan, but joined the Men’s New York Fashion Week party at a presentation on Tuesday at Calvin Klein Collection headquarters. Stopping by to check things out were Los Angeles Lakers’ Nick Young, British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton, Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler, Andy Cohen, Tyson Beckford, and New York Giants’ Victor Cruz.
