The article reports that six new beds, using a variety of subtle fabric constructions were added to Calvin Klein Collection and four to the Khaki Collection for spring 2005. Printed lightweight cotton voile is accented with stitch like details, inspired by Japanese tie-dye techniques for the duvet cover, while Rustic Metallic uses a printed silver leaf silk organza over a cotton lining for the shams to echo the metallic accents in the duvet cover. The Khaki Collection is more casual and straightforward in color with color blocks, bold stripes and an abstract paisley as the design themes.
