Calvin Klein, Inc. Turns 40 NEW YORK, Sept. 5 / — Calvin Klein, Inc. plans to celebrate the company’s first four decades and the future of the company, with a one-of-a-kind event, which includes a star-studded list of VIPs from the fashion, entertainment and art worlds, and a rare visit to the most eagerly anticipated public space to open in New York City in decades.
The official anniversary event will be held in New York on Sunday, September 7th alongside the High Line — the elevated rail structure soon to become a public park — in the West 30s along Tenth Avenue, blocks from the company’s longtime headquarters. Guests at this event will be invited to tour a section of the High Line itself and will be among the first to experience the expanse of and the views from NYC’s most exciting future public promenade.
The High Line is the 1.5 mile, former elevated railway that extends for 22 blocks along the West Side of Manhattan which will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind, 6.7 acre, grand, public promenade that can be freely enjoyed by all in New York City.
For the event, Calvin Klein, Inc. has engaged two of the most highly respected artists of our time to collaborate on this project. The event will be held within a custom, multilevel structure designed by renowned architect John Pawson, one of the world’s foremost proponents of minimalist architecture and design. Additionally, and as a centerpiece to this unique event, acclaimed artist James Turrell — referred to as a ‘sculptor of light’ — has been commissioned to create one of his brilliant, signature Space Division light installations within Pawson’s structure.
