Calvin KleinSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review
9/11/2014 Faith Cummings/fashionwirepress.com

After Calvin Klein's Resort collection, it was clear the brand was harking back to the body-clinging silhouettes it was founded on. Francisco Costa continued that attitude for Spring, injecting a sporty spirit into the assortment with a very straightforward color palette and clean lines. The selection felt very now and compatible with the things trendsetters are looking to add to their wardrobes, inspired by Warhol's Mao Zedong portraits as well as the works of a mysterious artist in Marfa, Texas.

The shapes were athletic-inspired yet discernibly graceful with a simple tank dress with a ribbed flare hem informing many of the assortment's looks. Belts cinched the waist to further accentuate the female form and sky-high patent, ankle-strap sandals anchored the ensembles: not equally as elegant as the designs by any means. Embellished armholes and geometric shape motifs gave the offerings a touch of ornamental flair.

Two-tone collarless coats in black and navy were decidedly modern, though the lineup broke through to fiery red on a leather perforated jacket - The texture also made a statement on flirty sleeveless dresses: a bit tennis-inspired in their construction.

Functionality was infused with a medley of trousers and culottes in black, white, and navy. Most were paired with long two-tone tunics: not the pieces if you're looking to enhance your figure but pieces that definitely exuded a sense of effortlessness.

Most collections of the season have shown steamy flashes of flesh in one way or another and the case was also true here with sheer, perforated frocks and a come hither plunging neckline. There wasn't much in the realm of red carpet attire, but these designs might fit the bill with the right undergarments, or none if you're as risqué as say Rihanna.

Costa aimed to raise the bar when it came to sport-inspired attire, blending athletic-influenced designs with an essence of beauty and finesse. He hit the mark with seemingly little effort - offerings chock full of a sense of enlightenment and unadulterated charisma.
