Key Takeaways: Minimalism, as appropriate for the house of Calvin Klein. Francisco Costa showed structured, oversized outerwear over slim, curve-hugging dresses in simple shapes.
Color Palette: Browns and greys, tempered with beige. Hints of metallic shine made an appearance in the minimalist collection.
Silhouettes: Big over small. Outerwear–in the form of funnel neck coats with curved side seams and 20s style cocoon wrap coats–enveloped models in slim cut dresses. Thick cropped funnel neck sweaters brought volume to looks with body-skimming tops and skirts. Controlled volume was seen at the sleeves, waistline, and hemline.
Accessories Report: Simple black gloves, tights, and ladylike handbags.
What’s Wearable: For those who aren’t afraid to show some curves, the entire collection could easily be translated for the streets. We’re all over funnel and oversized turtleneck necklines for those with long necks.
