Francisco Costa took the clean lines associated with namesake designer Calvin Klein and moved the Collection label into the future with innovative fabrics for S/S 10. Super lightweight organza was mixed with metal fibers to create moldable separates that were bent or crushed into shape. A crinkled, handmade quality was brought to organic cotton, raw silk, rough linen and even summer-weight mohair, for asymmetrical shift dresses and rounded coats that stood slightly away from the body. The pieces seemed to interact with the environment, as if they were breathing or alive in some way. Riches from beneath the earth’s surface, like coal, copper and pewter, inspired a palette that perfectly bridged the gap between nature and technology.
