The master of minimalist chic, American designer, Calvin Klein continues to impress with his sleek and simple, but fashion-forward and flattering designs. For one that has built an empire on a look that is clean and completely uncluttered, it is truly amazing that this many years later, each of his collections still brings something new to the table, or runway, if you will.
His recent Ready-to-Wear 2011 show was no exception. While a minimalistic approach often takes on a Zen-like, Asian-inspired flair, Klein kept the correlation fresh and different. A streamlined palette of black and white featured billowing fabrics for wide, slouchy pant legs and loosely draped dresses. Looks included menswear inspired slacks, tunic tops and over-sized blazers balanced, out with plunging necklines and draped, floaty layering pieces. Dolman sleeves and shiny silks, as well as bias cuts and simple sheath dresses in varying pops of bright solids further enhanced the fluid and feminine feel.
