Calvin Klein Spring Summer 2013

Given that I normally love Francisco Costa’s elegant minimalism for Calvin Klein, this collection was a bit disappointing. There were weird geometric bra shapes, ugly iridescent fabrics, and general sloppiness. Not what we expect from a brand that has been delivering consistently simple, beautiful, desirable collections for the past few seasons.

I love…

a dress that makes you go wow.

when someone can make an off-the-shoulder dress (the thing I hate most after strapless) look stunning.

I loathe…

a dress that looks like a young designer gone wrong. This is not perfect, minimal, simple Calvin Klein.

sloppy tailoring. I like the concept of the strips of black, but this should be much more polished to make it onto the catwalk.

when models look like they have lumpy insect bodies.

    Didn’t like the bra cups either, but I liked some of the sloppiness about the collection – most specifically the light grey satin when wrinkled in a great way (it reminded me of the first collection of Victoria Beckham, she had some dresses with the same effect)

    The third photo looks like someone had a Mickey Mouse inspirational moment. Too bad.
