Fired Up for Spring, with Color at Calvin-------
I don’t remember seeing so much color in a Calvin Klein show in seasons. The label presented its accessible collection for Spring this week, and while the looks were mostly monotone, they didn’t want for brightness. Skinny jeans came in yellow, shades of coral , red, and aqua, and red suits were paired with contrast orange button-downs. Blasts of cool, summery white, as in warm-weather-perfect white trousers and an all-white suit, offered an alternative. But what really caught my eye was a long shirtdress in bright vermilion. It had the fluid lines and easy drape of many of the pieces in the collection, as well as a slightly seventies chic. It’d be perfect to wear during a summer day in the city, or to take away on a trip, pairing it with the flats and raffia bags that were all over the Spring runways. I’m planning my winter holidays in sunny Brazil at the moment, and I only wish it was in stores now.
