Pure is the way designers like to describe either a clean look or onethey feel is very true to their aesthetic, very them. Usually it comesoff as fashion speak, but in the case of Francisco Costa’s springcollection for Calvin Klein, there’s really no other word. The showopened with a halter dress in ecru washed silk. Cut high and precisearound the neck, deep and low under the arm, it fell just above theankle in a fluid line, the only embellishment a thin drawstring aroundthe waist. It was the kind of spare, sexy look that defines thesmoldering minimalism Calvin Klein invented. As company president TomMurry said, “It’s the most ‘Calvin Klein’ [Costa’s] ever done.”
