NEW YORK (AP) — Designers Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli are leaving Calvin Klein as part of what the company describes as a global creative strategy to unify all of its brands under one vision.

Costa has been at the New York fashion house for more than a decade and became the women's creative director in 2003. Zucchelli became the men's creative director a year later.

In a company release Tuesday, Calvin Klein said the new strategy "comes as part of a global revolution in the direction of the Calvin Klein brand."

There was no immediate word on how the designers will be replaced.
