Calvin Klein, Spring 2008 Collection

Brazilian-born designer Francisco Costa delivered a collection worthy of a standing ovation. Not because of its grandeur, but more because of its understated elegance. Innovative enough to push the Calvin Klein label forward without altering its core DNA of crisp, clean lines, Costa's spring 2008 Collection offers long, flowing sleeveless dresses, wide-leg trousers and shift dresses in calming hues of platinum, white, plus touches of green, blue and apricot. His woman embraces a minimalist approach to fashion. Not because she doesn't want to be bothered. More because she's that chica who understands classic styles like Costas will always make her fabulous: they do all the work for her. —MAC
