I call it the night before the morning after.
00:07
It's that expression, you know,
00:09
she's very feminine, she's very beautiful,
00:10
she's very empowered.
00:11
And what's more for the wardrobe that she needs?
00:14
So it blends the men's wardrobe and the feminine wardrobe.
00:18
What he's done with the collection is so beautiful.
00:20
He's kept the Calvin Klein, what it always was
00:21
which is simple and sexy and he's made it his own
00:24
and the same time and that's hard to do, you know?
00:27
I think that tailoring is such a staple for the house.
00:30
It was the beginning, it was the end.
00:31
Here we land this unraveling, this character, the suits
00:34
and what she's going to wear afterwards.
00:36
And I really felt that she needed to become undone again.
00:40
We see a lot of suits at the beginning,
00:41
then it goes into soft dresses,
00:43
they're made with really soft fabrics, linings,
00:45
they're really coming apart.
00:47
You see the glen plaids, which is very much a part
00:49
of the style you know, the construction, very beautiful
00:51
and then we move into somethings that's ultra feminine,
00:54
which is the furs, which is quite unusual for us to do.
00:56
I've never done that.
00:58
And then mixing it with some stones,
00:59
which is kind of an adornment, very feminine,
01:01
quite interesting touch.
01:03
It was quite exciting, quite fun to play with it.
