Francisco Costa is set to bring his minimalist designs for Calvin Klein Collection to Macy's with a capsule collection to celebrate the retailer's "A Magical Journey to Brasil" promotion.
Macy's already carries many of the brands under the Calvin Klein umbrella, but not the designs from their runway collection, of which Costa is the creative director. Customers will now be able to get a peice of the higher-end collection for mass market prices. Martine Readorn, Macy's executive vice president of marketing told WWD "We obviously have a huge distribution of Calvin Klein products but we do not carry the [designer] collection that Francisco creates, unfortunately, those price points are not within Macy’s price points.”
The Brazilian designer will design a line of dresses inspired by the architecture and sunset of his homeland, Costa told WWD “This fresh, youthful line of dresses reflects both my roots and the modern, yet timeless spirit of Calvin Klein.”
The collection - called "Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein" - will be priced from $130 to $180. It launches May 15, and will be instores and on Macys.com for two months.
