Calvin Klein Collection + LAND- 01.29.10

ckart0.jpg On incredible and unexpected inspiration tonight ~ i ended up at the Calvin Klein + Los Angeles Nomadic Division event. As the invite stated - “CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION AND LOS ANGELES NOMADIC DIVISION (LAND) TO PRESENT FIRST-EVER EVENT IN LOS ANGELES IN CELEBRATION OF L.A. ARTS MONTH AND ART LOS ANGELES CONTEMPORARY (ALAC) Brands’ Creative Directors Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli to Host Special Evening; Unique Collaborations with Jean Shin, Neville Wakefield, and Special Installation by Jennifer West” Firstly the space across from the Pacific Design Center is absolutely stunning. A beautiful culmination of art and fashion, these collaborations were breath taking ~ Jean Shin created “Pattern Folds” commissioned by Calvin Klein, and first unveiled in Seoul. She’s known for her ability to create installation which transform castoff materials. In this case she created a beautiful installation on the first floor of the event. Upstairs in a specially lit stark white room, Neville Wakefield presents Zuchelli’s Spring 2010 collection… it was quite a trip to wander through the room as the collection is suspended and the lighting constantly shifts from incredibly bright, to dark. See the images of these collaborations as well as the space itself on the next page, and videos and images of Jennifer West’s installation have a post of their own here.

There was something amusing about the paparazzi-fest outside… ckart23.jpg

I did love that one of them had that awesome little fold flat plastic stool in orange… ckart24.jpg

While we normally don’t show the people side, especially the celeb side of this stuff ~ love this pic of kate bosworth that Linhchi happened to get ~ it feels like its asking for a caption/speech bubble contest… ckart25.jpg

A few other celeb types mingling and having their pics taken… it was so bizarre having this view of people wandering in between the artwork and watching how they cycled through the groups… ckart26.jpg
