Calvin Klein fall 2017 NYFW



And fawning season has officially begun for NYFW fall 2017


Well here is the thing ... if he is one of the great design talents of our generation (NYT 2/9/17) then I must not have gotten the memo... WTF was that or WTF was that supposed to be? If this is what commercial looks like then I say GOOD LUCK! Somehow I don’t see the boys or girls in Boise or Buffalo flocking to own this stuff! Good thing about underwear is they don’t have to make a fashion statement unless of course you do porn. Better yet is fragrance because the shoes are ugly for both men and women and who exactly  needs sub nosed metal tipped cowboy boots with Calvin Klein engraved on the metal plate? BTW ... notice the DNA of his idea of what Dior was supposed to look like?

So here is a little stream of consciousness I was able to put together from both watching the clothes in motion which is supposed to make them better and then the viewing the stills: silly sheer body con tops for men and women… plastic bag raincoats and overlays … commercial =boring… still has no idea how to design a dress ... how many reefer coats and double breasted suits do you need to show… pancake boob bare midriff dresses.. cpo shirts  (ooh baby) … The leathers look stiff and cheap ... the denim is no revelation... an odd color palette for fall...  patch work quilts which I suppose were meant to be Americana a la Ralph… lastly much ado about not so much if not nothing at all

To think this was shrouded in secrecy is almost as laughable as that fool being qualified to be the commander in chief ... Honestly what was so great? …  and judging by the blank expressions on the audience’s faces I am not far off here!
