If, like us, you've spent more time than you'd care to admit watching Clueless over the past 15 years then you'll be very excited to hear the latest news from Calvin Klein - Francisco Costa has reissued the little white dress that Cher wears in the film.
Apparently we have Ilaria Urbinati to thank. She's the co-owner of a boutique in LA called Confederacy, which is renowned for its collaborations with designers. The latest in their line-up is Calvin Klein, and when Ilaria first met Francisco Costa to discuss the project it seems that she let slip about her Clueless obsession.
She told Fashion Week Daily, 'I sort of geeked/fan-ed out on him and went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless! I reanacted the entire scene for him (you know, "Cher, what are you wearing?" "A dress!" "Says who?" "Calvin Klein!" "Well, go put something over it!" "Duh, I was just going to!" and then she comes out with the clear trench). So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress.'
After sitting Costa down in front of YouTube and making him check out the dress, she managed to convince him to redesign it. He tracked down the original pattern from a factory in Itlay, and the resulting piece has just hit the store for $916.
