Calvin Klein Collection: SS2013
If you ask Francisco Costa, the creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection, he would say that his latest collection was... “Erotic. Feminine. Urban. Chic. High sophistication”. And it certainly was, especially if we focus on the erotic part, pure sex. Sheering and architectonical clothes with a perfect sartorial that could remind us of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, one of Calvin Klein’s most famous employees. “She is very much a part of this house,” Costa said backstage before the show. “She had this really cool vibe. All the Yohji and the Calvin.…There was an edge to her, the clothes never felt dull.”
It somehow felt like a sequel to last spring/Summer’s collection with hints of the last season’s aesthetic, but with a more interesting use of fabrics and and materials... meshes and more intricate cuts, in which he juxtaposed solid and transparent fabrics, including provocative, weblike moiré cages over strapless sheaths.
The use of contrasting trimming in different part of the dresses including the hems was really beautiful and gave a sense of modernity and power to the clothes. A power found in the Calvin Klein Woman’s own femininity, in which her own delicacy gives her a rare yet interesting strength and sense of independence. The color palette was very basic... black and white in different shiny and matte textures with hints of light yellow and ivory.
A feminine and soft armor that exuded pure strong femininity, in which he leaves the 90s inspiration of previous collections behind to welcome a See the best looks from the runway new futuristic erafull of sensual allure.
