Calvin Klein’s Milan Office to See Job Cuts

MORE CALVIN KLEIN CHANGES: The avalanche of changes at Calvin Klein Inc. appears to be impacting its structure in Europe.
Rumors have been swirling on the possible closure of the brand’s Milan office in Viale Umbria, where Calvin Klein has also held shows and presentations. Responding to a request for comment, the company on Monday issued a statement attributed to a spokesperson saying: “We can confirm that there is a collective dismissal procedure in place for some departments of the Calvin Klein Milan office. The company is working to try to minimize the social impact of this procedure. We know it is a difficult time but we trust in the cooperation of all of those involved to find appropriate solutions for the impacted associates.” No additional details were provided.
Sources say the number could total up to 50 employees, but that some could be headed to the PVH Corp. headquarters in Amsterdam. Calvin Klein Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp.
As reported, in the wake of Raf Simons’ departure as chief creative officer last December, Calvin Klein plans to relaunch the 205W39NYC collection business under a new name, design approach and creative direction, and it also plans to trim staff and close

Calvin Klein’s First Design Miami/Basel Installation Features Raf Simons’ Limited-run Feltri Armchairs for Cassina

RAF’S AMERICAN SPIRIT: For the first Calvin Klein installation at Design Miami/Basel, Raf Simons has envisioned an upcycled American barn with an assortment of limited-edition Cassina Feltri armchairs.
Dreamed up by the Italian designer Gaetano Pesce in 1987, the Feltri armchair is an ironic take on the royal throne. But Calvin Klein’s chief creative officer selected upholstery for the patented Feltri, which has a soft backrest. Each of 100 numbered Feltri armchairs has a one-of-a-kind American heirloom quilt dating back to the 19th and 20th centuries, emblematic of American heritage and a homespun, handcrafted ethos of days gone by.
For an added Americana element, one of the barns built with reclaimed wood from the 19th century for the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC fall show will be reconstructed at the fair. As part of an ongoing alliance with the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, there are billboard-size images papered on the interior of the barn. Attendees at Design Miami/Basel, which gets underway Tuesday, will have first dibs on the first 50 chairs. The other 50 will go up for grabs at a later date.

Is Justin Bieber Calvin Klein’s Next Marky Mark?

Justin Bieber could only post so many Instagram photos (here, here and here among others) before rumors started to swirl that the pop star and his much-adored six pack may be the next face of Calvin Klein underwear.

Though the reports remain unconfirmed that Bieber and his signature scowl will be modeling for the brand, a Calvin Klein source reportedly told The Daily Mail that the star was photographed earlier in the year.

The Daily Mail also pointed out that the most recent campaign featuring supermodel Lara Stone are reminiscent of the 1992 black-and-white ads featuring Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg.

Even though we’re still wondering if the rumors are true, there’s one question that’s really on our mind: Will JB ever be able to top the iconic Marky Mark? Will anyone?
