after all that minimalism and focus on the body that francisco costa did for fall, it was great to see that he didn’t abandon it for spring. he just softened up a bit and did it in the most amazing sherbet palette of sea green, cool grays, white, peach and nude.
the collection included soft tie waist jackets, slim pants, tailored jackets worn with high waist mid calf skirts, elbow sleeve turtleneck sweaters, loose polo shirts, slouchy trousers, long dusters, wide sleeve blouses, and windowpane check windbreakers. dresses came in every shape imaginable: long t-shirt, jersey tube, shiny crewneck, tone on tone dip dye sleeveless and flounce hem shifts.
for evening, the name of the game was sleek gowns with front seaming, silk cap sleeves, and the last four exits in string halters. i hadn’t really loved many of costa’s spring efforts, but this one was exquisite. even though it was very calvin, it was also new and very costa.
