Calvin Klein Collection
Francisco Costa, Women’s Creative Director
Seductive simplicity. Introducing the Spring 2015 women’s Calvin Klein Collection. Sophisticated proportions combine an uptown sensibility with a downtown edge.
Silhouettes. Architectural liquidity. A delicately, strong blend of easy yet refined separates. Drawing from menswear, an elongated tank becomes the anchor silhouette of the collection. A play on proportions; light, ribbed tops with assertive scoop fronts and racer backs atop cropped and ultra wide-leg patched pants. High waisted, delicately formed, stainless belts complement the collection’s soft, subtle layers and fluted and flared skirts. Simple forms and shapes are transformed with texture – such as hand-perforated leather dresses in vibrant shades of lacquer red and marine blue. Honeycomb knit is woven with Lurex, edged with delicate metal inserts and threaded leather trims for a crisp yet feminine construction. Quiet seductive lines continue into eveningwear with deep plunging necklines balanced with embroidered metallics.
Fabrics. Fine knits with ribbed textures underpin the entire collection, while glossy jacquards and hand-punched leathers create surface interest. Diverse and elaborate threadwork and stitching emerges on modernist jacquards and silks. A colorblock patchwork or a bold, oversized dot print materializes to create a dramatic effect. A silver knit fringe coat presents an element of glamour.
Palette. Saturated color. Grounded in a mélange of blues — from marine and dark navy – add depth to natural shades of cream, papyrus and white, while most surfaces have an alluring, subtle sheen and finish. The palette is capped with a statement-making lacquered red.
Accessories. Modernist appeal. A bold, sculptural platform in a lacquered patent leather is offered as a one, two or t-strap. A variation of the silhouette is crafted in monochrome lizard and is finished with a stainless bracelet ankle strap. A sling-back silhouette, crafted with a clear, solid, Plexi base, juxtaposes natural aesthetics with a sporty, modern allure. Available in black, navy, white and red lacquer.
