Calvin Klein Collection Women’s Fall 2012
Iconic urbanism. Introducing the Fall 2012 women’s Calvin Klein Collection. Movement and ease, met with sharpness and precision.
Silhouettes. Hourglass lines embrace the body. Focus is on the waist, accentuated with the inverted darts and matte glazed silver belts. Suspension tailoring and flared shapes add subtle motion, creating energy and intrigue. Femininity with a cool confidence. Contouring effects are seen on polished jewel necklines and low waist, pleated pants. The house’s signature shift adopts a more romantic, voluminous sleeve and a curvilinear skirt. Hems rest above the knee for day and mid-calf for night. Eveningwear is laced with intricacies. Elaborate knot and cage embroideries on high-volume dresses combine embellishment with lightness for an effortless look.
Fabrics: Sumptuous and tactile. Mixed materials with complementing weights and surfaces from modern, textural combinations. Supple pebbled plunge adds detail and complexity, used as inserts or to counterbalance wools. Innovative fabrics – like technical tweed, bonded basket weave crépe and painted wool-mohair – enhance the collection’s contemporary, urban aesthetic. A camouflage needle punched wool coat introduces on element of depth. Soft, super fine shaved shearling, shown in coats and dresses, makes a refined statement.
Palette: Pure, stark, and minimal. Dark, melodic tones – onyx, midnight and classic black – intensified with a dramatic, vivid spectrum of sienna, poppy, cerise and carmine. Parchment offers a soft touch of color, in key pieces or slight peeks of contrast in folds and pleats.
Accessories: Architectural sophistication. A menswear inspired shoes, offset by an elegant, almond shaped captoe, plays with a masculine and feminine aesthetics. The sculptural, stacked heel has a flared silhouette, featuring a wide base that narrows at the top. A tall boot version lends a sportier appeal. Offered in either matte or high shine polished calf, as well as luxe alligator, each style comes in a essential palette of chalk, buff and black. Embodying both form and function, a curved, tubular frame is the apex of a structured, trapezoidal bag.
