For the spring 2010 Calvin Klein collection, Francisco Costa showed that minimalism doesn’t mean masculine. Brazilian born, Francisco Costa is creative director for Calvin Klein’s collection for women. His creations stress the idea of freedom with a pared-down approach.
Costa’s 2010 spring collection is youthful and sensuous. The models were almost makeup-free, wearing ponytails without accessories. Costa played with loose-fitting organic dresses, crumpled texture and transparency.
Minimalism in haute couture is about subtraction. What could be more perfectly simple than that?
