11 things the Calvin Klein creative director refuses to live without.

Francisco Costa, creative director of Calvin Klein and co-host for this past week’s The Apartment by The Line Los Angeles opening, handpicked some of his favorite objects from the retailer. Costa’s choice of furniture and travel essentials reflect Calvin Klein’s clean-cut aesthetic, largely characterized by simplicity and muted colors. Below, we highlight the most noteworthy of the set.


1. Rodin Oilo Lusso Powder Cleanser 

Linda Rodin mixes granular rice bran with moisturizing sea algae, and her signature blend of softening jasmine and vitamin C-filled neroli. The travel-friendly vial is “a must for smooth and flawless skin” for Costa. Made in the US and comes with a facial towel.


2. Natural Icelandic Sheepskin

This piece was sourced by architect Bryce Gracey while on assignment for an interior design project. Costa likes to throw this over furniture in “an ultra-modern seating area.”


3. Sika Nanny Rocking Chair

Designed in 1969 by the late Danish designer Nanna Ditzel, this rocking chair was made with the idea of having no legs. The result is a visually dynamic piece using curvilinear motifs that manages to be both soft and bold at the same time.


4. Fritz Hansen PK80 Daybed

This Poul Kjærholm-designed leather daybed was inspired by ancient Roman couches, upholstered with premium natural leather and supported by satin-brushed stainless steel. The Bauhaus piece is nearly half of this writer’s yearly salary.
