Splurge: Calvin Klein Collection Savea B Dress
Thursday, May 19, 2011 • Permalink •
I spotted this Calvin Klein Collection Savea B Dress in the new arrivals section of online boutique shopbop.com. Instantly I felt a wave of nostalgia. This dress is classic, minimalist Calvin Klein. The length, the body-conscious fit, the drape -- it's so clearly inspired by Calvin Klein's '90s column dresses. But, that's perfect for the current trends toward maxi-length dresses, modest-chic and new minimalism.
Time has proven that this long, lean style is now a classic that will serve you well for decades to come, making it worth the splurge price tag. This particular dress is available in Black (shown here) and White. While the Black is much more versatile (and stain-proof), the white does a much better job of showing of the interesting bias seam details and folded v-shaped back. It's kind of a toss up which is logically the best bet, but there's something about the simplicity of the Black version that has me captivated.
