Timeless chic: Calvin Klein Spring 2003

02/11/2013

Calvin Klein Spring/Summer 2003
Spring 2003 collection was pure, sensual, ethereal and breathtaking. The fluidity of it, the combination of softly glowing silk, powdery suede and creamy leathers, the semi-transparency were not just beautiful – they were simply timeless and without a doubt worthy of a separate post seamlessly fitting into my Timeless Chic series.

It was the very last collection Calvin Klein designed for the brand before the company was sold to Phillips-Van Heusen for $400 million  with additional $30 million in shares and future revenue royalties for both Klein and Schwartz. Francisco Costa became the new creative director while Klein assumed the consulting role.

  2. I remember this collection well, because it was like a dream... and funnily enough, I also remember the collection it inspired at the Gap, which included a line of satin-like handbags. I had a pink one that I adored and that, naturally, someone spilled a drink ont the first time I wore it out. But I'll always remember it fondly :)
    xox,

  4. Dear Natalia, thank you for the great Calvin Klein week! I've always been a fan of his clean, minimal aesthetic and one of his white or black dresses would be a dream! I hope everything is well! Caterina
