Confederacy, the chic LA boutique has forged an exciting collaboration with Calvin Klein - and Clueless! fans get excited, Cher's infamous little white dress is being reincarnated. The partnership came about after owners Ilaria Urbinati and Danny Masterson became friends with Francisco Costa, with Urbinati unable to hide her adoration for the Calvin Klein brand.
"It was love at first sight," she recalls of the meeting, "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 renacted the 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 Urbinati's enthusiasm and a few watches of the said scene on YouTube, Costa was persuaded and the legendary dress remade, with the original pattern obtained from the warehouse in Italy. To the delight of the LA label, Confederacy are the first to carry the limited-edition dress, which will be available for $915 in-store and at shopconfederacy.com alongside the rest of the Calvin Klein Collection.
