Calvin Klein Collection Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2015 New York

Like an ice cold beverage on a hot afternoon the Calvin Klein show on the last day of New York Fashion week went down smooth and refreshing.

The tall glass of water models in their long and lean tank dresses (a top trend this week) were given an added boost of altitude thanks to some serious platform heels. The effect being that the ensembles felt stretched even further. And if that wasn’t enough of an extension, designer Francisco Costa added high waisted belts to focus the eye at the top of the torso.

All of this lengthening of the silhouette made the perfect backdrop for Costa’s exploration of leveling his textiles. Creating interest via a tiered effect of different fabrics stacking, blending and breaking when they came together on the body. In particular, the designer’s choice to go with fabrics that have a metallic glossy shine to them gave this collection a heightened sense of movement, despite the fact that the chosen shape of the show was relatively close to the body.

As always with a Calvin Klein collection, the ensembles veered towards minimal, almost clinical designs. With a restricted color palette of black, navy, creams and red, Costa turned to subtle details -- leather stitch work on a skirt, strips of metal rounding over the shoulder or holding the straps of a dress to the center of a back, and those aforementioned slim belts -- and added just a touch of intrigue into this first-rate modern collection.
