Runway Recap: Calvin Klein S/S 09

For Calvin Klein’s spring collection, Francisco Costa gave us the brand’s signature minimalism, but with an added futuristic element. These looks were sharp and geometric with interestingly cut lines and pleats that gave the effect of folded paper, and the emphasized forms were executed with cool precision in icy colors of white, silver, and light cobalt. While a few pieces, particularly some boxy outwear and oversized shift dresses, were admittedly unflattering, this collection as a whole was considerably more experimental than previous seasons have been and one of the few shows to stand out from an otherwise unremarkable week in New York.
