While Francisco Costa’s work for Calvin Klein could hardly be called ornamental, it was notable that he presented a collection a great deal more decorative than recent seasons.
Borrowing the metallic belts from his autumn 12 show, Costa reworked them as huge square buckles on black belts that cinched in waists. Oversized, voluminous shoulders emerged from the top while wide trousers and full skirts flowed from beneath. A palette of black, white, grey, navy, blue-black and petrol blue allowed the sheeny leathers and vinyls, sculptural wools, lattice-work and check to add the interest.
In short The textural elements should see Calvin Klein attract even more fans.
