....There is something magical about backstage photography at fashion shows. All the prep work that goes into a matter of minutes of showtime.
No music, no movement, no fancy sets or lighting just organised chaos and half dressed models stopping for a picture or two.
It takes quite alot for me to want to watch a live streaming of a collection but Calvin Klein always leaves me wanting more, season after season.
A predominantly black collection this time around from Francisco Costa, still with a feminine and minimalistic feel but with a new volumised silhouette. The focus was all on the waist with metal band belts used to cinch in shapely coats and jackets. Hem lines stayed below the calf and funnel style necks were a key design feature throughout. Leather and wool gave shape and structure to the pieces and sheer panels were included to remind us again of the brands underwear empire. Overall a demure and refined collection with a cool modern edge.
