Calvin Klein Pre-Fall 2009

I was impressed by the sheer simplicity and tailoring of Francisco Costa's designs for Calvin's pre-fall collection. As cliché as it sounds, it seems to speak to the desire to keep things practical in the current gloomy economic state, with the emerald lurex dress shining among the black sea to remind us that the grass is greener wherever that other side may be. Most importantly, this is a collection that can walk right off the runway and onto the street, with little more effort required than sliding on a pair of shoes (those zippered boots in the middle if I had it my way.)
