NEW YORK Calvin Klein Inc. is planning a second High Line party after first offering guests at its 40th anniversary party a sneak preview of the new public space in 2008, WWD reported this morning. The event will serve as the official after-party to the High Line’s opening summer benefit on June 15.
Requests for details weren't immediately answered by representatives from Calvin Klein, but executive vice president of global communications Malcolm Carfrae cited the park's “visionary, contemporary concept” as the brand's motivation for the partnership in an interview with WWD. The “First Party on the High Line,” as it's being called, will follow the High Line's 6 p.m. gala at Pier Sixty and cover the soon-to-be-opened park between Gansevoort and 20th Streets.
Incidentally, June 15 is also the date of the 2009 Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards at its new home at Alice Tully Hall, making that Monday night a busy one for the events' overlapping guests.
