Calvin Klein collection Spring 2012
Fragile eroticism. Introduncing the Spring 2012 women’s Calvin Klein Collection. An innocent, yet sensuous emphasis on form and femininity.
Silhouettes: Sculpted and curvilinear. Suspension cuts and draping create graceful hems, slightly longer in the front and raised in the back – finding balance in asymmetry. A culotte and cropped pant have a sense and fluidity. Jackets and vests with moulded details accentuate the waist and are essential for layering. At the foundation, the purity of the slip dress. Shoulders are bare and necklines intimately contour the bust. Mystery abounds in the revealed and concealed. The romanticism and glamour of slip dresses continues into evening. An elongated, textured tulle dress is airy and effortless. A jacquard satin shawl collar coat with a fine, rose gold snake belt is the ultimate refinement.
Fabrics: Delicate silk crepe tissue underpinnings are suggestively uncovered and hidden beneath silk charmeuse and smooth silk satins. Light and flowing silks form waves and arcs, and at times are folded or pleated. Elegant double faced silk crepe and cotton crepe lend a touch of weight and depth. Texture emerges in a sleek silk/metal satin and hand-stitched details, form simple lines to allover intricate micro embroideries.
Palette: Subtle and utterly feminine. A soft, fresh palette of gardenia and petal paired with intimate hues of pout and nude – shaded with deeper tones of smoke and lacquer. Hints of metallic accents at the waist and as straps.
Accessories: A classic, demure toe, juxtaposed by an edgy spiked heel, combines femininity with a sleek sexiness. The updated t strap platform is offered in monochrome or contrasting neutral tones of sand, whitecap, avorio, porcelain, silver, anthracite, and black, with mixed combinations of patent, satin, calf, metallic, nappa, and stingray.

Refinement with an androgynous edge. An updated take on men’s pajama and shirt dressing and seductive bias cut slip dressing. Scaled back and reduced to the essence of the clothes in both shape and color with a play on panels and layers. Natural, effortless beauty, Provocative in its semplicity. Confident.
Fabrics: Liquid fabrics with a sense of gravity and movement slip around the body. Cupro satin and synthetic washed crepe have a soft sheen or matte, sensuous feel against the skin. Languid and feminine. Modern materials are balanced with natural, noble fabrics of linen, crisp cottons, and silks. Neoprene jersey adds a sculptural look and sheer, transparent, fine gauge sweaters are used for layering.
Colors: A pared down palette – rich with cream, butter, vanilla, and a minimal scheme of withes – from optical to delicate off white. Accents of zest, lipstick red, and graphic black. A pixilated texture print on Cupro silk short pajamas and a t shirt dress introduces an unexpected element.
Key looks: A milk white cupro satin bias slip tank over a skinny, slouch pajama pant and a cupro silk midi lenght kimono dress are the latest nonchalant summer pieces. For outerwear, an off white soft bonded cotton/linen collarless kimono coat. A cream double jacket tuxedo infuses a masculine, sophisticated edge into eveningwear. A synthetic washed crepe halter dress or strapless jumpsuit for dramatic and feminine evenings.
Accessories: Colorful tinted sunwear in bold hues give a modern twist. Barely there sandals and pumps in tonal suede and butter soft nappa, contrasted with color and black, are sexy and provocative. Clutch bags in suede and nappa are linear and constructed with a play on hard and soft – delicate, yet strong.
