Calvin Klein’s Metallic Mystery
It’s a bittersweet day here in New York as we bid adieu to fashion week until September. With the sun shinning and the weather unusually warm, I headed to the final show on MyFDB’s agenda: Calvin Klein‘s women’s wear collection designed by creative director, Francisco Costa. With the CK men’s show being a huge hit, I was excited to find out what was in store for their female customers this fall.
Upon arrival, paparazzi was already swarming in anticipation of celebrity arrivals: Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth, and Kerry Washington. Photographers had a real field day inside because the trio was seated together front row. While waiting to get in the venue, I spotted a sleuth of fashion’s heavy hitters making their way to builing including: Grace Coddington, Anna Dello Russo, Joe Zee, Terry Richardson, Andre Leon Talley, and Georgia May Jagger (who were seated together).
Once the show commenced the audience was treated to grey dresses, which had a bit of a youthful appeal with detailing around the collar. The collection progressed to showcase stone technical silk satin pieces that carried a shine to them. Keeping in true Calvin Klein fashion, each piece was structured perfectly for their modern consumer. I also swooned over alpaca fur, metallic pieces in gold, and multiple black silk items. I felt like there was a bit of mystery with Francisco Costa’s designs, especially with the large textured coats which are perfect for hiding a seductive metallic dress underneath. Mystery and surprise is how I’d sum up this collection- conservative and stylish garments mixed with more form-fitting and attention getting pieces.
