(NEW YORK) Diehard shoppers are already going to the Calvin Klein Collection store on Madison Avenue tomorrow, because it's essentially the ideal weekend to score marked-down Fall merch while there's still some selection. But even CK neophytes (are there any of those left?) should be inspired to drop by the boutique and check out the store's holiday windows.
Last year, artist Hedi Ferjani brought a raucous, glittery installation. This year, Calvin Klein Inc.'s SVP of creative services, Dale Rozmiarek, went for a more shoppable approach, curating a selection of limited-edition objets in categories such as bed and bath, furniture, barware, dinnerware, and gift categories. Items include tables, chandeliers, hand-loomed rugs, shearling pillows, cashere throws, and even ornaments. They were made by notable designers such as Hiroko Takeda, Catherine Regher, Laura Kramer, Francois Chambord, Jono Pandolfi, William Couig, Michael Ruh, Pablo DeSoto, Camilla Huey, Celine Cannon, Andrew Hughes, Douglas Bryce, and Michael Anastissiades. Fabien Baron, has even offered some original framed prints from his photography book, Liquid Light.
Amy Mellen, creative director for Calvin Klein Home, and Ulrich Grimm, creative director for Calvin Klein shoes and accessories, have created one-of-a-kind pieces along with Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli. The interiors were conceived by architect Enzostefano Manola, and the product will be on display through January 3, 2011.
