Calvin Klein recently unveiled the latest in a series of Sterling Ruby works commissioned by Chief Creative Officer Raf Simons to reinvigorate the label’s headquarters. The showroom is the second in a three-part series of installations, with the first being the look space at Calvin Klein’s headquarters and the third to be revealed later this year. The permanent installation series is a collaborative vision of what a big American fashion house should look like now created by Raf and Ruby. The two aimed to display a vision of youth, of reconfiguring American fashion but also American corporate art and corporate culture. “When Raf [Simons] invited me to work on these projects for Calvin Klein,” explains the artist, “he gave me the freedom to create work that was essentially my own. But of course, I also thought about what the company meant and stood for; I thought about America.”
