Let’s party! That seems to be the battlecry at Calvin Klein’s company global headquarters at 205 West 39th St. on September 8, 2017 to fete the brand’s celebrated Creative Officer Raf Simons’ Spring 2018 CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC runway show
The party featured electrifying DJ sets by Nina Kraviz, Hito, Cassy, Veronica Vasicka, Clara 3000 and Pandora’s Jukebox. Guests in attendance for the evening included Paris Jackson, Brooklyn Beckham, Lourdes Leon, Barry Jenkins, Bernard Sumner, Kelela, Aluna George, Julia Nobis, Hanne Gaby Odiele, Lexi Boling, Binx Walton, Hari Nef and Connor Franta, among others.
The day prior, Mr. Simons presented his Spring 2018 CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC collection in the same space. The collection takes its inspiration from cinema, from the dream-factory of Hollywood and its depictions of both an American nightmare, and the all-powerful American dream. Thriller heroines, heroes and antiheroes. The aesthetic codes of movie protagonists are endlessly remixed, their meanings given new interpretation and celebration.
