“After a week of in-your-face colors and dizzying prints, Francisco Costa served up a palette cleanser for Spring.(…) What was new was the softness and the femininity. Occasionally in the past, Costa’s minimalism has erred on the conceptual side. He’s been slowly moving away from the sculptural constructions that used to define his work, but he said good-bye to them for good this season.
In their place were slipdresses that by their very definition had a real sense of the body.”

“In Francisco Costa’s hands, everything was as light and fragile as thistledown, the palette an ethereal blend of face-powder pinks, ice blues, and mauves, and pale vanilla yellows like Jazz Age lingerie. In fact, many of the dresses resembled lingerie of the type that Daisy Buchanan might have worn.”
