Calvin Klein Fall 2013: Forward March

If the sharp shouldered coats and oversized roller belts didn't clue you in, the machine gun soundtrack drove the message home: Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa was doing military for fall.

If the sharp shouldered coats and oversized roller belts didn't clue you in, the machine gun soundtrack drove the message home: Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa was doing military for fall.

His take on the trend was all about structure: strong shoulders and wide lapels on coats; stiff leather tops and paneled skirts. There was a rigidity to the collection--the fabrics used were stiff, thick, and unyielding--but Costa injected sex appeal by way of bandeau tops that exposed a bit of midsection (looks 7 and 14) and skirts with peek-a-boo holes lined up in a grid pattern.

We've seen many takes on the evergreen military trend this season but Costa's take for Calvin Klein was one of the strongest yet.
