Calvin Klein Collection's women's wear creative director Francisco Costa showed a perfect, modernist, minimalistic collection—all long, lean, body-conscious lines—at company headquarters yesterday afternoon.
Set to ambient music reminiscent of the static of a skipping record, supermodels who were supermodels in the previous era of American minimalism—including legends Stella Tennant, Kristen McMenamy, and Kirsty Hume—strode the runway in glossy navy blues, slatest greys, creamiest whites, and deepest blacks, glossy like vinyl. Celebs Kate Bosworth, Kerry Washington, Helena Christensen, Kate Lucas, and Naomi Watts sat front row. This fall, Calvin Klein's trouser lines will be high and wide, coats will be dramatic and geometrically cut, and eveningwear will be sculptural.
