As Francisco Costa and his team take inspiration from the past, they are actually pushing further into the future. Lurex took center stage at the show, while 60s was the mood.
Francisco Costa has been the master of singular vision and cleanliness of all time. Yet this FW15 collection seems to be at the far side of his usual brilliant set-up. The coats made from metallic yarn and the shinning tights and boots are not exactly attractive, still, the earth tone cashmere short dresses and super cute culottes are wardrobe essentials, along with the ultra-practical leather accessories and footwear. Raw edges and those loose threads are friendly reminder of the Costa’s carefree spirit.
There is no doubt the Calvin Klein team has been actively moving forward in terms of fabrication and construction. As the natural resources slowly burn out, the manmade materials will definitely be more affordable to the mass.
