Calvin Klein Collection A/W 2015
Francisco Costa's patchworked Sixties salute in velvet, suede and chainmail
Mood board: Calvin Klein Collection's creative director Francisco Costa threw his usual modernist architectural leanings right out the window to deliver a 1960s-tinged, rock-girl romp that was lean, mean and for the first time (at least for him) unapologetically sexy.
Best in show: The tone-on-tone patchworking of glossy pony skin or supple suede looked brilliant on sweeping overcoats and flared culottes. But the best pieces were the pierced leather and silver metal dresses for a finale of new-school chainmail.
Finishing touches: The 1960s scooted in on low blocked heel pumps and on skin tight, over-the-knee boots that looked like sleek leather leggings under mini-dresses or long, lean overcoats.
