Calvin Klein brand, dubbed by media as ‘number one Sterling Ruby fan’ does have an array of collaborations with the LA artist. Mr.Ruby designed the space for the brand’s 2017 autumn/winter show, but what he has done at the CK headquarters has taken the collaboration further. The artist has transformed the towering building in his kaleidoscopic vision: no more minimalist white cube showroom, no more unexpressive colors. He painted the first three floors of the faced in black, throwing an assemblage of hanging objects over the ground-floor space along with hand-painted wallpaper and fabrics in the showroom. 

Yet, Ruby’s most visible project will be unveiled this summer, when the artist reimagines Calvin Klein’s flagship store on Madison Avenue.

Calvin Klein品牌被媒体称为 “Sterling Ruby的头号粉丝”,的确与洛杉矶艺术家们有一系列的合作。Ruby先生设计了品牌2017年秋冬时装秀的展出空间,他在CK总部所做的工作是为了进一步的深入合作。这位艺术家使用万花筒般的视角来改变高耸的建筑:不再是极简主义的白色方块陈列室,不再是复杂深邃的色彩。他将前面的三层涂成黑色,将一大堆悬挂物体放在地下空间,将一大堆悬挂的物品放在地面同时把手绘壁画和纺织物放在展厅中。
