Francisco Costa must have had a hard time keeping this gorgeous collection under wraps. When you have studded dresses, paneled leather coats with alternating coloring, sequined sweater dresses, dresses with leather shoulders and leather detailing in the center, circular cutouts in dresses that are half leather and half fabric how the secret doesn’t get out is beyond me. This eminently beautiful and international collection will be the toast of the fall season and here’s why. It’s a collection of dresses and pants (gauchos included) that look nothing like tha majority of collections. It is feminine but not overly such that you walk away feeling that this is some sort of girly girl escapade. It’s serious and strong without the vamp. Costa has a winner and while it may not entirely be about this, the registers will be ringing loudly come fall as a result.
