Summary: I'm a sucker for architectural minimalism when it comes to my preferred design aesthetic and few really do it better than Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein. I don't know what it is about this upcoming spring , but many of the designers that are known for sharp angles have gone soft. As in softer and fluid…more organic silhouettes. For Spring Costa even opted for lighter almost earthy color palette than what we have come to expect. The overall effect was amazingly unstructured, yet sexy and sophisticated. Surprisingly,some of the pieces reminded me a bit of Narciso Rodriguez's collection. Particularly the last three dresses that had almost the identical look and fluid movement. A departure for both designers, but obviously a sign of a major trend to come.
