Style.com wrote of the Calvin Klein Collection this season that “this show had brains as well as beauty.” That is really MY kind of collection. I’ve always loved the the minimalism of Calvin Klein, which has always been a part of its DNA. That being said, Francisco Costa has been slyly introducing a sensuality and sexiness to the the brand each and every season and it is working. I loved the scuba-fabric bustier cups paired with mid-thigh skirts. While this look is quite revealing, the stiffness and architectural look of the material keeps this combo incredibly classy:
Hemlines definitely came up this season, and my chic seat-mates Bryan Boy and Elin Kling didn’t seem to mind. It was cool to see a younger client getting so excited about the brand–check out how fresh this black skirt feels, but the look still is inarguably CK Collection thanks to the fabric play going on up top:
My favorite part of a fashion show is always the final walk, when all the models line up and we get one last glimpse at a collection. I love getting a second look at the stand-out pieces, and it really allows the audience to see the story that the designer was trying to tell. When the willow-y models took one last stroll down the runway, the white mesh, silk gazar and bustier looks really sang:
The Calvin Klein party at the newly-opened Beatrice Inn (flashbacks!!) later that night was the perfect grande finale to yet another crazy NYFW. Usually by the end of the week people rush to make a plane to London, or can’t wait to crawl into their barely-slept-in beds, but this particular party kept people socializing until the sorbet and espressos. While the evening was a far cry from the debauchery of Beatrice nights past, it was definitely a highlight of my week. Maybe it had something to do with my sweet dinner company???:
