Calvin Klein Keeps Channelling Brand Nostalgia in A New Capsule For Net-a-Porter

Calvin Klein released a 14-piece capsule collection exclusively for Net-a-Porter. The new capsule is somewhat a throwback to “the old” Calvin Klein times, celebrating the true CK minimalistic spirit that made the brand a real fashion icon.

CK’s creative director, Francisco Costa – he has been working for the fashion house for more than 10 years now – decided it is time to go back to the roots and remind us of why we loved the famous all-American tees and stretch sweaters in the first place.

“It really is very DNA-driven, very Calvin,” he said of the capsule. “We presented the collection as a lifestyle collection including jackets, trousers, sweaters, [and more]. Then they made an edit, and the edit turned out to be mostly dresses because it is the category we do so well with,” Costa told to ““This collection is a chic, well-edited selection of the key pieces a woman needs in her summer wardrobe.

These dresses are to fascinate you with the beauty of their simplicity – and you know that there is a fine line between the utterly confusing “normcore” (anti-)trend and the original Calvin Klein minimalist chic. Don’t let it trick you! These simple pieces of plain clean colors will take you from a day at work to a red carpet – that is the beauty of CK. “The ease of these feminine silhouettes was inspired by the effortless chic style of the Hamptons and the sophisticated neutral palette is light and airy with bursts of shell and carmine pink.” And when back in 2011 Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone chose to make their award ceremony appearances in a typical Calvin Klein dresses, there sure was no issue of underdressing of whatsoever.
