Calvin Klein 2005 Spring & Summer Collection

Calvin Klein ? a name we all recognize and a designer who is world renowned for his fabulous fashions. So how did Calvin Klein come to be?

As a young boy in the 1940s Calvin was already pre-occupied with designing and sketching fashions for women. The boy grew into a young man earning scholarships to both the New York High School of Art and Design; and the Fashion Institute of Technology.

This was at a time when America was just beginning to develop its own originality and uniqueness. Eventually he teamed with his childhood friend Barry Scwartz.

Their very first products were coats for women and men. From coats to ready to wear women's sportswear with clean lines that were simple and effective. Then came men's fragrances, underwear, and designer jeans.

Designer jeans that anyone could afford was a new idea and it very quickly took over the jean market. Soon men's shorts became sexy and a desirable market was created. Then when it was least expected Calvin Klein launched Obsession, Eternity, Escape, CK One, and Contradiction; all household words of fragrance, all obsessions in their own time.

CK Be was created by Calvin Klein in 1996 and features a fresh oriental woody fragrance that blends musk, mandarin, magnolia, peach, sandalwood, mint, lavender, bergamot, and juniper berry making it a memorable fragrance for both men and women. In 1996 CK the unisex fragrance took the market by storm.

Calvin Klein was the youngest designer to be awarded Coty Award ? not just once but for several years -1973, 1974,1975, 1982, 1983 and 1986, Calvin Klein also won the Council of Fashion Designers of America Award for outstanding design in both women's wear and men's wear.

Today Calvin Klein, Inc. is a globally recognized fashion, design and Retail Company determining the future of fashion design. Not only is it globally recognized in the fashion industry it's a household word.

The Calvin Klein Spring and Summer 2005 Collection combines natural tones, using soft flowing fabrics and clean lines. This spring Calvin Klein launches its new line of Choice Calvin Klein - Young Contemporary Jeanswear.

The denim line includes dark vintage, sandblast, bleached blue and graffiti denim washes. It will feature a unique branded pocket stitch for fashion items, and the jeans will be will be offered in a variety of fits.

The non-denim line features vibrant colors and patterns and of course company logos. This line offers satin bombers, sweater knits, t-shirts, halters, and layered tank tops. Choice Calvin Klein is branding itself as a young contemporary lifestyle brand.

The fall line by Costa stays true to the Calvin Klein brand: clean, supple, luxurious clothes made for city life. The fall wardrobe is rich in detail, finish, and texture, with a slim, somewhat sixties silhouette.

The line includes sleek navy suits with small jackets, and just above the knee skirts, black cashmere, and A-line fur combining mink and shearling. Even the basics consist of satin roll necks, and lean pants.

Both the 2005 Spring & Summer Collection and Fall Collection are worth having a look at. Fabulous fashion ideas worth considering. You can have a look right here at http://www.style.com/fashionshows/collections/S2005RTW/complete/thumb/CKLEIN
