Calvin Klein Catwalk Fashion Show New York SS2011
The Calvin Klein fashion show was like a parade of Dutch models. New girl Daphne Groeneveld opened the show, followed by Dutchies like Nimue Smit, Mirte Maas, Patricia van der Vliet and Lisanne de Jong. Another new Dutch girl named Iris Egbers was booked for this Calvin Klein show exclusively. So her career is off to a good start. The show was finally ended by Lara Stone, who is of course half Dutch. And with so many Dutch girls walking the Calvin Klein show we can be nothing but proud.
From the front row Katie Holmes and Julianne Moore watched Francisco Costa’s new, yet again very minimalistic collection. The designs looked clean and soft as they came by in shades of ivory, black and grey (there were exactly one red and two blue items).
According to Costa the collection was more about the body, the fabric and obvious interesting cuts.’The new field for me is softness, and making that very sharp and crisp, which is much more difficult. It was challenging, fun, much more fluid, elongated’, he said.
There were a lot of long dresses, which ended mid-calf. They were either very broad at the shoulders or shaped like a tank-top. Some dresses had a very sexy low V-line, others had subtle pleats added on the front or decorative folds.
The models wore simple ponytails and all looked very sophisticated in the CK designs. And although the clothes were very plain, Costa made them feel relevant and fresh for next summer.
