Calvin Klein 40th Anniversary
Halle Berry and her model man, Gabriel Aubry, were among the star attractions at Calvin Klein’s 40th anniversary bash in New York City Sunday night.
Calvin Klein has remained a top-tier label through 40 years and is still a force. The company is so deserving they can throw a party during the ongoing New York Fashion Week, filling Manhattan’s new High Line park Sunday night with celebrities.

The designer’s soiree is one of the most exclusive events at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, where designers are showcasing next spring’s fashions.
The event was held at the High Line, a former elevated rail line that’s been converted into a park on the city’s west side
Among other A-listeres there were Cynthia Nixon, Eva Mendes, Rosario Dawson, Naomi Watts, Martha Stewart, Kimora Lee Simons and Brooke Shields, who became a household name back in the 80s with the iconic Calvin Klein jeans ad campaign.
The then-teenage Brooke said:
Nothing comes between me and my Calvins.”
The signature looks come in all black, all white, architectural dresses and sculptured coats. They’re luxurious without being showy. On the occasions that garments are embellished, the addition is done for effect. Because it’s done so rarely, it works.
Calvin Klein, today is owned by Phillips-Van Heusen Corp. with Francisco Costa and Italo Zucchelli as its creative forces, doesn’t look much like Calvin Klein’s Calvin Klein — the one the Bronx native opened with childhood friend Barry Schwartz back 1968. Back then, the duo made coats.
The new designer Francisco Costa mixed supple, thin fabrics like washed silk, charmeuse, chiffon, gauzy mohair, and cashmere against bulkier wool felt, shearling, and ponyskin, in a typically limited color palette of black, ivory, cream, pinky-brown, steel blue, and peach.
He showed flowing silk dresses and mid-calf skirts, slit up the thigh or sliced into awkward flaps along the hem, and loose, hip-length self-belted jackets. There were dramatic black motorcycle-type jackets, cut oversize from ponyskin or felt and worn over fragile underpinnings. Mixed into the outfits were some promising pieces: a short black wool jacket, a black angora and chiffon tank top, a sheer white shirt, some lovely pintucked dresses. But overall, the collection lacked exactly the kind of clean, effortless, coolly pretty clothes that Klein taught the world to want.
