Calvin Klein turns 40
Sep '08
Calvin Klein Inc plans to celebrate the company's first four decades and the future with a one-of-a-kind event, which includes a rare visit to the most eagerly anticipated public space to open in NYC in decades and a star-studded list of VIPs from the fashion, entertainment and art worlds.

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. These guests will be among the first to experience the expanse of and the views from New York City'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. This space will be transformed into a one-of-a-kind, 6.7 acre, grand, public promenade that can be freely enjoyed by all residents and visitors in New York City. The first section of the High Line is projected to open by the end of 2008.

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.

Pawson, who is also responsible for the concept design of Calvin Klein Collection's New York City flagship store on Madison Avenue, has a long- standing relationship with the company and a shared design vision and aesthetic.

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.
