Calvin Klein S/S 12 Presentation

Posted by janelle | November 10th, 2011

The words vibrant and minimalist, may not traditionally occupy the same space in the American fashion landscape, but Calvin Klein‘s spring collection was an artful merger of the two ideals. With saturated colors shown alongside stark white pieces, Kevin Carrigan created a look imbued with the season’s optimistic spirit. Playing with an aquatic theme, models perched on rocks like mermaids and black sand spread across the ground. Attention to the slightest detail has always been a Calvin staple, so the engaging atmosphere comes as no surprise. Instead we were wowed by the sophistication of the line and its cuts, from tailored suiting for men to floaty dresses for women.
