SENSUALITY 1. The quality or state of being sensual (sensory; of or relating to sensation or to the senses):
The essence of Calvin Klein’s minimalism is revealed in this dress of airy matte jersey that demurely covers the front and reveals an asymmetrical slice of the back. In paring his design down to the essentials of line, color, and form, Klein emphasizes the physicality of the body, the luxuriousness of the textile, and the sensuality of the interaction between body and dress.
