Yet another fashion label is changing creative directors. The creative director of Calvin Klein Collection women’s since 2003, Francisco Costa will be leaving the company, the brand announced in a statement earlier today. In addition to Costa’s departure, Calvin Klein Collection’s mens creative director Italo Zucchelli will also be exiting the company.
Along with the creative director shake-up, the brand also announced that it will ultimately have one creative vision across all categories going in the future. Part of this can be seen in the #mycalvins hashtag which has permeated many Calvin Klein campaigns this season ranging from an underwear campaign starring Kendall Jenner to the Jeans advertisements featuring FKA Twigs.
Steve Shiffman, CEO of Calvin Klein, Inc. says in a statement, “This creative strategy marks the beginning of another significant chapter in Calvin Klein’s brand legacy since Mr. Klein’s retirement. I would like to thank Francisco and Italo for their unwavering commitment to the Calvin Klein brand and their accomplishments over the past decade. They have both contributed immensely to making Calvin Klein a global leader in the fashion industry, and they have done so with dedication, focus and creativity.”
