Following the footsteps of fashion giants like Karl Lagerfeld and Giambattista Valli, fashion label Calvin Klein's Francisco Costa collaborated with retail brand Macy's to launch a limited edition Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein capsule dress line.
The creations have been exclusively designed for Macy's A Magical Journey to Brazil campaign with retail prices for the dresses expected to range from $135 to $180.
The campaign's main aim is to promote Brazilian design and culture throughout its stores across the country.
I am excited and proud to participate in Macy's special campaign highlighting my native Brazil, said Costa. This fresh, youthful line of dresses reflects both my roots and the modern, yet timeless spirit of Calvin Klein.
Starting May15, the Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein dresses will be unveiled at the Macy's Herald Square flagship in New York City and in more than 80 Macy's stores nationwide.
Influenced by modern Brazilian architecture, the collection features pure lines and clean shapes for an effortless look. The fluid crepe and jersey silhouettes are offered in a vibrant palette of guava, orange clay, and warm cocoa reportedly inspired by Brazil's sunsets and natural environment.
Given our ongoing and long-standing relationship with Macy's, we are honored to participate in this unique, multi-layered promotion and celebration of Brazil. In addition to Francisco Costa's first-ever dress capsule, Macy's consumers will see a vibrant range of men's and women's apparel items from the existing Calvin Klein line, designed by Kevin Carrigan, as well as a selection of underwear, shoes, and accessories, said Tom Murry, President & CEO, Calvin Klein.
Under the direction of Carrigan, a full line of men's and women's Calvin Klein apparel was specially created for Macy's A Magical Journey to Brazil. The complete offering is infused with Brazilian style, showcasing vivid colors and prints, and is complemented by a bright assortment of accessories.
