Francisco Costa has mastered the art of minimalism without repetition. Season after season he turns out thoughtful collections for Calvin Klein, subtly updating the brand’s vision of luxe austerity while providing his own take on modern elegance. Fall brings Costa into fresh territory with plays on texture and shape. The restrained color palette might not stray far from the neutral zone, but the array of finishes keeps things compelling. Bonded alpaca, cashmere, jersey, flannel, leather, lambskin; just an assortment of the materials Costa utilizes to great effect. It takes a moment to notice such an understated use of sumptuous textiles, but that is part of the magic. No matter how many hours of blood, sweat and tears were poured into the collection, it always looks effortless. Simplicity is the most difficult thing a designer can accomplish and it is the crux of true luxury. When Lara Stone glides down the runway in Costa’s metallic shift looking like she was born to wear it, you begin to understand the diligence and commitment to artistry that has come to define the Calvin brand.

    Who’s that girl in the 2nd last picture with that silver-grey shiny dress?? She’s amazing! Lovely cheekbones…

  9. carola says:

    Lara is lovely but I’m just bored with the whole pissed off look.

    Jac needs a beauty contract though I think she’s still too young for that. Wonder if she’ll be a long distance runner in the business.. I remember Tanya D started at 14 or 15 and she was the hottest thing and then who knows what happened, I mean she is still a top model but her career is not what it used to be. I can’t remember a lot of models that started at such a young age and have lasted for at least 10 years, Karolina and Isabeli come to mind, I’m sure there are others.. But I hope Jac does make it, she’s very beautiful and really knows how to move in front of a camera.

    Definitely not into Juju, I do love Emily Baker’s face though. And I wanna see Arizona in every campaign and editorial, most of these new girls look pretty much the same but her look is so original and different.

  18. Milo Najera says:

    beautiful collection. Most dresses remind me of mid-late 90′s Rock (Sherly Manson), 70′s sophistication and modern clean elegance.
