Titled the Morning After, Francisco Costa created a collection for spring that embodies ease and an undone pursuit of expression. Since taking the helm at Calvin Klein in 2003, Costa has cultivated a culture that is deep-rooted in the idea that less is more. However, the designer has also made sure to do so in a way that has kept the label modern and relevant.
How was your weekend, my fellow style mavens? Mine was spent with friends, some fall cleaning that consisted of me purging a substantial chunk of my current wardrobe, and some contemplation on the coming season and what items would make a great addition to my closet. When it came to deciding which pieces would stay and which would go, I chose to donate items that I hadn’t wore for at least two years, unless they were quality pieces that could stand the test of time and outlive any fashion trend. At first, the task made me feel a little anxious, but now I feel relief from de-cluttering my closet space, and from actually having room to rebuild my wardrobe with more of those quality pieces that I covet.
However, one piece that is always timeless is the trench coat. I usually stock my closet with at least one new one every season, because the item is such a classic that you simply can never have too many.
What other items am I looking forward to building my fall wardrobe around? Well, lace-up flats are a great and comfortable piece of footwear to have, and so is a great fitting pair of black jeans and a classic bag. And while I may still be on the hunt for that perfect classic bag, I am definitely on the right track when it comes to the others.
