Calvin Klein's fall is all about belts

Waist interest - details that highlight the mid-section - is a key phrase in fashion right now.

Calvin Klein's fall is all about belts

Waist interest - details that highlight the mid-section -   is a key phrase in fashion right now.

And judging from Francisco Costa's fall 2013 collection at Calvin Klein, Costa definitely got the memo.

In keeping with the Calvin Klein aesthetic, Costa designed clean and structured garments for the women's wear collection.

He made suits in navy blue, black  and shades of green. He boldly put cut outs in the back and played with hems on skinny pant legs.  But it was the belts that made the apparel sing. Some were monochromatic wraps cinched tightly around leather trenches. Others were bold and black with over sized silver buckles.   It was all so smooth, slimming and neat.

Calvin Klein, like many of the designers at New York Fashion Week, gave futuristic silhouettes a classic feel.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
