[All photos by BILLY FARRELL for PMc]. Wednesday, September 30th, design enthusiasts and fashionistas gathered at the invitation-only grand opening of the Calvin Klein Lifestyle Shop at ABC Carpet & Home in the Flatiron District, featuring the Calvin Klein Home Collection. More story and photos from the event below.
Greeted by passed hors d'ouevres and cocktails, guests mingled with hostess of the evening and Elle Decor Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell, Calvin Klein menswear designer Italo Zucchelli, creative director of CK Home Amy Mellen, Richard Lambertson of design label Lambertson-Truex, news anchor Erika Tarantal, Forbes writer Steve Bertoni, and Tom Murry, president of Calvin Klein. If the guest list was any indication, the event was a success - and a landmark - for Calvin Klein Home Collection, which continues to mirror the minimalist look as seen on the label's runway shows. The chic, urban neutrals of the collection served as a fabulous complement to the modern lines seen on the furniture and material, maintaining the signature design aesthetic. It was easy to see that the ultra-glam crowd that walked through the space looked right at home among this designer décor.
