I've always looked at the ever-changing blues of the sea, the powerful white gush of waterfalls, the weathered silvery grey and black glitter of rock formations, the dense layered grey-greens of a jungle, and thought, 'How nice if someone could somehow translate all these hues and textures into a print or a fabric'.
To me, the colours found in nature feel abstract, hard to pin down, and beautiful because they seem to vanish as soon as one tries to articulate them. And yet Francisco Costa has managed to just that for the spring Calvin Klein collection. The crinkled, rumpled, gently weathered textures of the clothes have managed to capture the sensory, transcient experience that is the outdoors. The collection seemed almost alive as the models moved.
