Calvin Klein constructs deconstructive looks for spring 2016 at New York Fashion Week: The Shows.
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES (SEPTEMBER 17, 2015) (REUTERS) – Calvin Klein creative director, Francisco Costa, had intimacy and sensuality in mind when he created the label’s spring 2016 collection.
On the last day of New York Fashion Week: The Shows on Thursday (September 17) Costa showed a collection of 40 looks that were inspired by a couple’s “the morning after.”
“I don’t know, I just loved the idea of her playing with this sort of sensuality. Waking up at his house, I mean, the thought of the couple is just as important. So it’s wonderfully soft, you know, really beautiful way of thinking of the two having a good time. And of course you’re exploring his jackets, his coats. But also being very glamorous, very soft,” the designer explained.
The American design house is known for its destructive feel, but this time Costa said he pushed it further and constructed current and easy pieces with a bohemian spirit.
“The feeling of capturing things, and praising them. It’s your old charm, it’s the chain from your mom, it’s his jacket that’s falling apart.”
Costa also paid homage to Calvin Klein of the 90s with slouchy silk dresses that had a finished touched.
Leather was paired with satin and silk in neutral tones of porcelain, ivory, eggshell, golden taupe and peach with black as an accent.
Accessories in the line mimicked the clothes with most shoes and bags having a frayed appearance.
Fashion Week ended on September 17 after 7 days of shows.
