Looking Back, Thinking Forward
(NEW YORK) "You definitely know where you are!" laughed Kevin Carrigan at Calvin Klein HQ this morning, as the mastermind of ck Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein Jeans, and Calvin Klein unveiled his Spring 2010 looks with a ground-floor presentation stocked with next season's most sought-after models. (Trust Calvin to cast them first). Carrigan paid tribute to the brand's storied history while infusing Spring with plenty of modern ideas about dressing.
First things first. Carrigan's wildly popular "Body" jean, which launched for Fall 09, has evolved to include a slim miniskirt, a cuffed shirt, and a motorcross jean complete with little zippers at the ankle. All will be available in airy hues of white, cloud, and ozone. A sexy, baggy painter jean offers an trendsetting alternative to the straight-leg style.
The trend-setting collection pieces focused on white, denim, and khaki staples that were now-ified with Carrigan's forward-thinking shapes and his signature sexiness, even in the realm of basics. A slim-fit grey cargo sweatpant was worn with an indigo lightweight denim ruched-sleeve blazer and a perforated leather sandal. A soft tissue T-shirt dress was decked out with a bit of draping that gathered in a side zipper. A safari look was represented in a button-front khaki cotton sateen dress with a sculpted cap sleeve. Tie-dye shirtdresses in a bright sapphire hue added to the Spring sensibility, while several graphic black-and-white floral prints offered office-friendly ideas for day.
Calvin Klein's accessories continue to strengthen by the season, with a wealth of flat, sporty sandals in neutral shades of leather. The heeled sandals, made of wide strips of waxed leather, are surefire best-sellers. Good thing they'll be in stores as early as January. Finally, a grey hobo made of vicuna leather and decked out in gold hardware was particularly striking--here's to hoping there's more where that came from for Fall.
