Calvin Klein Collection
The Calvin Klein Collection has it’s signature clean aesthetic. The waist was emphasized with a thinner belt but large buckle. i’m not too sure I liked that on every single look. The outerwear in this collection is superb with the broad sharp shoulders. The leather mix outfits looked great as well. The collection had typical fall palette of navy’s, forest greens and black. A bit more variety would have been nice. That said, I absolutely love the teal dress with the pleated cut out skirt. It’s the most jovial and youthful look.
At first glance, Marc Jacob’s collection seems to have tamed from the extravagance and grandeur from past collections. There’s a tinge of old Hollywood glamour in the way the models look. But you quickly realize that this collection is more about comfort and being true to oneself rather than making a statement. Yet, inevitably, the collection seemed to reflect Marc’s glum disposition, understandably so. The silver pyjamas are something that will easily come into a lot of closets. The outerwear is simple and elegant. Overall, I absolutely loved this collection. The dusty pink coat in particular is absolutely gorgeous. And anything with sequins had be completely sold.
Inspired by a painting, Marchesa’s collection still has the intricate and detailed design element to it, showcased quite well. After a not so great (from my point of view) collection last fall, this one seems to feel more like the designers aesthetics. The opening red coat with the embroidery looks grand and bold. The one shoulder biege gown with ruffles and delicate work all over is an absolute beauty and my favourite from the collection. As the collection progressed you have gowns with beautiful draping and structure with the embroidery getting larger. I’m not too big a fan of large embroideries and so I prefer my tiny ones. But this collection hit it off well.
