Layer weather is upon us, and Calvin Klein Platinum says this time the mood is rebellious, subversive and sensual.
The Calvin Klein apparel and accessories Fall 2016 collection for women is an empowering interpretation of the brand’s iconic staples reimagined for today’s generation of nonconformists.
In Calvin Klein Platinum Women’s, Soft 80’s punk and 90’s attitudes are fused in subversive soft pale colors of powder grey, dusty pink, pale blue; unexpected pops of crimson or crystal blue; and, punctuated by crisp black and white.
Jacquard fabrics are bold and graphic – macro grids clash with distorted micro zig-zags - creating a rush of movement and texture.
Smooth nappa leather is punctured with silver grommets. Soft stretch viscose is given a tough edge with embroidered holes.
Circularity continues into hardware, including oversized metal ring snaps, horn button detailing and large circular horn belt buckles, incorporated into tops and bottoms two at a time.
Styling is layered, with skinny knits, plaited rib viscose or plush cashmere sweaters worn under dresses and separates alike.
Top layers have the illusion of being recklessly slashed, when zippers that wrap around the body are worn open. Outerwear layers are luxe, in soft shearling, alpaca and cashmere.
The Calvin Klein Platinum Accessories Fall 2016 collection for women is disruptive and experimental. The new series plays with the boundaries of duality, highlighting the apposition of architectural lines and sinuous curves.
Alluding to art, the minimalist shades are punctuated by a signature brush stroke print and bold amplified tones.
The collision of elements continues in the silhouettes of supple leathers interposed by crisp contrasting edges and high-shine hardware.
Unafraid to eschew traditional femininity, the pieces are awash in punches of jewel greens and blues among the muted nudes and cream.
The elegant top handles and flared folds of Italian leather totes are offset by exaggerated chain links that reinterpret sophistication.
Calvin Klein Platinum is located at L1, SM Aura Premier.
