Collaboration Virgin Francisco Costa Tapped As The Next Macy's Impulse Designer
April 4, 2012
Calvin Klein head designer Francisco Costa, a collaboration virgin up until this point, has just been confirmed as the next Macy’s Impulse designer (you may remember past collections from Doo.Ri and Karl Lagerfeld). Under the name Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein, the capsule collection will include dresses priced $135-$180 — a first for Calvin Klein Collection.
The line even has a theme! To go along with Macy’s “Magical Journey to Brasil” promotion, the collection is inspired by Costa’s home country of Brazil. Martine Reardon of Macy’s told WWD that his inspiration,
Really came from some of the architecture in Brazil and the sunset on the horizon there.
So don’t expect the bright colors and bold prints that Brazilian designers are known for — but instead, the clean lines and neutral palette that is signature to Calvin Klein.
