Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Francisco Costa has been pushing the envelope for the Calvin Klein brand, and now that he’s in a groove there’s no telling where he’ll stop off. In his spring 2016 line, the audience was dazzled by a sudden, out of character use of a floral pattern, so naturally Costa chose to extend the use of print into the Calvin Klein pre-fall 2016 collection, as well. Animal prints with an interesting glossy brown texture or sleek white were used as a theme through the line, without throwing out the brand’s promise of sophistication. So fear not, the Calvin Klein woman will be looking as chic and well put-together as always.

Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

The original thought process of this collection stemmed from Barbara Hepworth, a British sculptor of the 20th century, whose pieces were featured earlier this year at the Tate Britain. The artist was known for taking bold work and toning it down with peaceful neutrals, which is where Costa picked up on his daring silhouettes paired with muted tones of camel, gray, and black. He mimicked the fluid nature of her work, which allowed the collection to come to a whole new level of sensuality.

When you think of Calvin Klein, one of the first things you might think of is tailoring. Costa has been having fun toeing the line between tailoring and fluidity, which has shown a distinct juxtaposition in his looks. Just this past spring during Fashion Week, Costa created a collection of grungy deconstruction to send down the runway, which focused more on the fluidity side, and now we are seeing a greater balance between the two, since with the fall season comes a need for coats – and what better brand to showcase tailored jackets than Calvin Klein?

Showing how both styles were incorporated into one outfit, Costa put together a wool outfit, featuring a chic wool jacket tucked inside a pair of loose pants of the same wool fabric. While this may not be the most modern outfit, the juxtaposition is clear and noteworthy. Both pieces are exceptional on their own, and would look great when paired with other garments, but showing them together was an interesting choice, but one that showed the level of craftsmanship behind the creation of this pre-fall collection.

For fall, these fabrics were well chosen. Everything has a breath of a nice, lighter fit, so as to combat the always-changing nature of the weather during those months. It’s hard to keep a wardrobe stocked with necessities for every season, since there are so many staple pieces for each set of months. Many of the pieces in the Calvin Klein pre-fall 2016 collection, however, can make that transition a little bit easier. The skirts in this collection could just as easily be worn in the warm spring months, and the light, breezy, neutral tops can be worn year-round, all depending on how you choose to style the look. So a lot of what Costa has done here is given the Calvin Klein customer options.
