“The show must go on!” The memo today at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, after like 3 billion feet of snow touched down at New York City last night. In honor of the most recent blizzards and chills, pretty much all across the East coast and in the Midwest, (Chicago is now colder than both the North Pole and Antarctica); Calvin Klein Creative Director, Francisco Costa, brings us with a capsule collection filled with all things fuzzy. As skirts and dresses become knitted. A trench coat and boots get embellished with calf skin. In shades of: black, white, and grey throughout the beginning of the collection. While the end mainly focuses on a more artistic like approach. Adding elements of tweed, and many rich and bright hues knitted together, very similar to that same artistic feel seen at Calvin Klein’s Spring collection, back in September. Fashion Blogger, Byran Boy may just be right when it comes to the best hue in the collection: a rich Olive. So whatever Winter chill may be on it’s way, for next Fall, at least Francisco Costa has provided us with the knits and tweeds to keep us perfectly warm, in a fuzziness fury.
From the bedazzled Prabal Gurung that Zoe Saldana sported. To Leonardio DiCaprio winning Best Actor. And Jennifer Lawerence photobombing a photo of Taylor Swift being interviewed, Last night marked the beginning of Awards season for the new year of 2014! … Continue reading →
Strapless gowns get a casual vibe when in a knit inspired fabric. And the trench coat gets a knit remake. While a fur ballet pink Trenchcoat makes you feel as if you’re curled up on the couch, even when at work or in the classroom. And Flapper inspired sequined shifts go under your staple knitted trench. Today in New York City, Calvin Klein‘s Francisco Costa presented the Pre-Fall 2014 collection for the brand. Mixing luxe with laid back for an über Chic and effortless result.
The collection is extremely feminine and Classy, but Daks Creative Director, Filippo Scuffi gives the collection that perfect vibe for any Classy women going on a vacation. Scuffi begins his collection using Neutral shades, and Peach and in Classy silhouettes but with a more relaxed, vacationing twist. Aka Baggy Pants, and Casual tops made in a very fancy fabric, still giving it that Classy, not Sleepwear look. The accessories in the beginning are fun tan chain necklaces, and of course big matching sunglasses. Giving the clothing a perfect, fun, Chic, and polished statement.
Scuffi then designs an array of ensembles using one of my all-time favorites, the Daks signature plaid, and of course black. Scuffi uses more Classic accessories, like Black pointed to pumps and big black sunglasses, which’ll give instant polish to any look however casual it is. A perfect beginning to London Fashion Week.

Towards the middle and end of the collection, Costa sends out models in tweed dress ensembles with fringe. Costa also designed many Beautiful dresses in the signature Cage fabric that was seen a lot back at Spring 2013 Fashion Week, and at Christopher Kane‘s Resort 2014 show. Snakeskin and Polka dotted prints, and fringe were also key elements seen a lot at New York Fashion Week, and towards the end of Costa’s 10th Anniversary collection at Calvin Klein.
