Calvin Klein’s signature chic minimalism reappeared for fall 2012, this time with artful details. (Case in point: Leather pleats that revealed sheer panels.) Creative director Francisco Costa used innovative fabrications in the collection, like embroidered laser-cut wool dresses and separates and knotted silk dresses with contoured bodices. Costa also carefully controlled color—quick hits of poppy, cerise, and sienna broke up a mostly black collection. Hammered silver belts and sleek black footwear accessorized each look.
