Calvin Klein Resort 2010 New York
I didn't see this posted yet

Quote:
NEW YORK, June 3, 2009

By Nicole Phelps

Francisco Costa didn't put destination clothes on his Resort runway—no bikinis or caftans here—but the airy palette; the weightless, often diaphanous fabrics; and the way many of the looks fell away from the body did convey a mood of relaxed, unburdened ease. The "T dress," so named because of its off-the-shoulders silhouette, was a key piece—for day it was cut in transparent nylon and billowed asymmetrically to the knee; for evening it came in shimmering gray organza and grazed the top of the model's skimmy leather oxfords. A gold nylon knit jacket and matching bandeau top that evoked Fortuny seemed to radiate a light of their own, and an asymmetrical silk Lurex gown would positively glow at a sunset wedding. If the sheerness of many of the other pieces—see-through cuff-detail trousers?—was a bit puzzling, there were plenty of more practical but still chic options hanging on the showroom's racks.

I like the colours but I hate the flat shoes (they are flat, right?)
Thanks for the pictures helmut.newton

Oh, it's beautiful! So light, fresh and ethereal but not boring. That is just what I needed after Francisco's F/W 09 collection.

I might be the only one, but I quite enjoy the flat shoes. I'm not too sure about the gold shoes, but the rest are quite chic.

I really like this collection; its soft, breezy and very lightweight. Its the perfect Resort collection, no?

I also feel a very 90's aesthetic. Especially in those first few looks.

Calvin Klein is like one big collection these days, every season its the same old boring thing. I havent seen anything new in years.
This looks like Victorian underwear. The dresses are very motherly and the shoes are grandmotherly.

The shoes are wretched with the clothes. I wouldn't have minded flats (a nice flat strappy sandal, a ballet flat) but rather than add a quirky edge I think they just look odd.

The clothes on the other hand are a very welcome change of pace from Costa, and there's something about this that's very Calvin in the late 90s/very early 00s. And thank god for the shots of color! It's high time that Costa remembers that CK isn't always black, white and gray.

I just adore this. It's a perfect resort collection, the last two dresses and the grey dress on Kasia are amazing.
