Crisp layerings in shades of gray-tinged whites provided the foundation for Francisco Costa's pre-Fall '13 aesthetic, underlined with turtlenecks, topped on occasion with vests, and countered with rich hits of browns and burgendies (think delectable shades of toffee and malbec as points of inspiration). Closely-cropped calfhair (some polished to a luxe sheen) provided the footwear fabrications, in minimalist boot silhouettes for the daytime-apropos ensembles; dainty, strappy metallic stylings quietly gussied up the nuit-worthy looks. Outerwear went the way of short-coiffed shearlings sharpened with noir contrastive cinching. On the topic of belts, whittlers were done to perfection, whether in creamy, femme and superskinny styles or midwidth, black, buckles slung to the side. If this is the shape of things to come in a year's time, Francisco, we're completely OK with that.
