Simons took to an all-American theme for his Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection. Models were dressed in head to toe denim, turtlenecks, block colors and reds and blues. Purples and yellows were also seen. Furthermore, oversized and structured pockets, buttons and tailored pants were a reoccurring trend.

Calvin Klein also showcased sheer and shiny, transparent tops and coats. Simon's line of business attire was mostly made of grey and monotone floral patterns, contrasted by bright turtlenecks underneath.
