these are amongst the few most common symbols of the brand, and so, you could imagine how surprised I was to see that there was no particular emphasis on any of the listed elements in this season's collection.
Admittedly, I never really look to Calvin Klein for inspiration, as I never feel that they have the "force you to look twice" factor that I find oh so appealing. However, this season really caught my eye, and I'm still struggling to work out why.
After too much time spent contemplating, I've made the following short list:
1) there was simply more press and blogger and social media coverage, which made the show unavoidable.
2) my personal tastes are more enticed by Calvin Klein, as of late.
3) the brand has managed to create an exquisite collection this season, which has drawn in a whole new audience, of which I am part of.
Either way- what a captivating and wearable, buyable collection.
The key pieces and aspects that caught my eye were:
The Colour Palette
|It was the colour palette that made this a 'capsule' collection. Versatile and interchangeable. The shades of navy and bold red enticed and coaxed monochomic-freaks like myself out of our white-washed caves. I found the idea of classically 'trashy' Americana colours being transformed into shapes and silhouettes that boasted the classical-chic elements of your average Parisian collection. Clever, simple, but never to be overlooked- something I never thought that I'd like.|
Collectively, I believe that this collection is one that I'll keep re-visiting and referring to.
A great success by Calvin Klein, in my opinion!
Ciao for now-
