Nothing less than ethereal, Calvin Klein's collection for spring involved deceptively simple shapes and unusually textured natural materials in clothing that appeared light as a feather. As actresses Eva Mendes, Calvin Klein and Thandie Newton looked on, models meandered through the warehouse space to sparse piano and xylophone notes, models were clad in breezy white needle-punched cotton, silk chiffon, organdy, crinkle silk and mohair jacquard dresses and separates, broken up with warm pastel tones and shades of grey. Klein's designer Francisco Costa went for an overtly organic vibe with minimalist clothing predominantly conceived in stark white, and later earthy variations of grey, that pushed unusual texture over form. Subtle and purposely bare garments were puckered, puffed, hand-pleated and pin-tucked, and looking closely, the unique surfaces appeared very technical and complex - simplicity is never as it seems.
