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.

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.
