(NEW YORK) The Los Angeles style emporium Confederacy has another chic collaboration under its belt. Ilaria Urbinati, a co-owner along with Danny Masterson, became fast friends with Francisco Costa over the last few months, and voilà---a Calvin Klein Collection collab is already hitting the sales floor in Los Feliz.

"It was love at first sight," said Urbinati of the meeting. "I sort of geeked/fan-ed out on him and went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless! I reanacted the entire scene for him (you know, "Cher, what are you wearing?" "A dress!" "Says who?" "Calvin Klein!" "Well, go put something over it!" "Duh, I was just going to!" and then she comes out with the clear trench). So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress."

And after watching that scene on YouTube, Costa complied. The original pattern was procured from the warehouse in Italy, and at last, the legendary white dress is hitting the sales floor, along with other pieces from Calvin Klein Collection, which Confederacy is carrying for the first time. The limited-edition dress will be available for $915 at shopconfederacy.com as well as, obviously, in store.
