New York Fashion Week: Calvin Klein

Ck

Francisco Costa's spring collection for Calvin Klein was a beautiful escape, with sensual, body-skimming slip dresses and soft suits casting a sweetly nostalgic spell and putting a romantic spin on the minimalist trend.

In contrast to so many of the collections here this season, which have been dizzy with color and prints, Costa used a soft palette of boudoir peach, petal and gardenia, contrasted with dusky gray.

Drop-waist slip dresses and below-the-knee skirts were lovingly detailed with pleated back panels, tissue-thin layers of tulle, and decorative seams that brought to mind the Art Deco Chrysler Building. Soft silk blazers came with shawl collars, or cut deep in front, over loose, cropped trousers

Bravo to Costa for bringing a romantic vision to the minimalist trend.
