Autumn-Winter 08 Inspiration - Calvin Klein

Don't get me wrong; I love a splash of colour. But there was something so clean, so austere, so grown-up about Francisco Costa's Autumn/Winter 08 collection for Calvin Klein that it had me craving a wardrobe of neat, beautifully made pieces in dark neutrals. So I started off with a silk skirt in a very dark blue from Massimo Dutti yesterday. Falling to just above the knee, with loose pleats, a tie belt and pockets bringing it right up to date, it's the perfect piece to wear for work during the day and then dress up with pretty accessories for evening. Now all I need is a grey wool coat to wear over it...
