Calvin Klein Collection Fall 2015
Francisco Costa, Women’s Creative Director
Urban eroticism. Introducing the Fall 2015 women’s Calvin Klein Collection, where unexpected, contrasting proportions collide and come to life.
Silhouettes. Simply streamlined. Sophisticated yet sporty; delicately blended and free-spirited. Skirts in full length or minis allude to the daringly, unpredictable purity and provocation of the collection. Urban sportswear transforms as a second skin with metallic knit jumpsuits and turtlenecks paired with patchwork and patent leather. Coats are key for the season with reinterpreted trenches and mini peacoats. Evening emerges with a maxi dress with a plunging neckline, constructed from a web of precisely linked skins.
Fabrics. Manipulated, textural leathers and softly luxe wools ground the collection. Cashmere and woven chenille are contrasted by parchment leather and shearling, which is sometimes curled, sheared, embossed, raised, or needle punched for effect. Patchwork provides an intricate artisan appeal, while deconstructed, frayed edges and stud details add a youthful, yet elevated exuberance.
Palette. A gradient at feminine and naturally subtle hues — ranging from ivory to blush and wood — form the base. Complimenting shades of black, forest, terracotta, aubergine, and burgundy add powerful depth to the line. Hints of metallic accents bring shimmer and allure, while patent surfaces give a luxurious, glossy undertone.
Accessories. Refined paradox. Chicly crafted in stretch suede or stretch napa, the boot and tall boot are lightweight and feminine with a square toe. An oversized, front-zip boot and an updated Mary Jane emerge in various shades at patent or haircalf with a mid-heel. The low-side loafer in patent or tortoise print features a tortoiseshell heel. The signature chain-link Calvin bag has evolved into mini clutch, saddle bag, and crossbody sling variations, featuring an oversized resin or tortoise strap.
