Summary: Costa is never going to deviate from the typical Calvin Klein line — nor should he. But the fall 08 collection had a fresh quality that raised some eyebrows and evoked a spirited response from typically cynical voices (Cathy Horyn, ahem. Bill Blass, ahem). And I tend to agree. Costa’s modern edge is seen most clearly in his necklines, shoulders and jackets (which range from contemporary cocoons to refined, angled, and tailored). Bravo.
