DESIGNER: Calvin Klein

INSPIRATION: The spring 1994 Calvin Klein collection (when Kate Moss took her first turn on the CK catwalk) and the basket work of fiber artist Ferne Jacobs.

TOP LOOKS:
White cotton poplin single sleeve dress; gray double faced cotton voile jacket with matching racerback tank and pant; black/tan crinkle silk/mohair and jacquard dress; silk cotton dresses in jade, blue, citron, and coral; sandy double faced silk organza needle punched detail gown

ACCESSORIES: Flat wooden sandals! (Similar to the ones at the Marc Jacobs and Marc by Marc Jacobs shows. So long high heels!)

WHO WAS THERE:
Eva Mendes, Jamie Dornan, Kerry Washington, Rose Byrne, Thandie Newton, Karolina Kurkova, Molly Sims

WHAT WE THOUGHT:
Designer Francisco Costa's ethereal collection started off with white dresses that looked like they were floating down the runway. Then he morphed into a selection of creamy gray and taupe combos consisting of silk mohair and jacquard fabrics. Douses of color punctuated the lineup in subtle shades of coral, citron, and blue. As always, the attention to detail was exquisite and the influence of the artist Ferne Jacobs - who twists threads together until they become elaborate sturdy baskets - was translated well in the needle punched detailing of the clothing.
