Calvin Klein has always been idyllic to me, while some people rubbish the influence of 90's fashion or 'non-fashion' as it has been called, I champion it. Calvin Klein SS '95 is one of my all time favourite collections- if not just because of its resurrection of slip- a sea of minimalistic gowns, ankle skimming cigarette pants and parisian chic was born- along with my obsession.
Last season definitely mirrored some aspects of Klein's earlier designs, this season however at NYFW, Francisco Costa went in a slightly different direction, whilst Costa still paid homage to the minimalism of years past, he took a decidedly futuristic turn by incoporating sheer paneled cut outs, leather, metallics, peplums and shin length hem lines in leather and wool- It's nice to see daring reds on the runway for AW along with a bit of risque a skin flash on otherwise demure dresses.
Setting the tone with Perfect pieces for a minimalistic winter with an edge.
