Raf Simons’ Calvin Klein Headquarters Will Be designed by Sterling Ruby.
The iconic and well-established fashion designer Raf Simons and Sterling Ruby, the epitome of rebellion in the art world have been good friends for a while, and are now collaborating once again for a new project. Previous works of the duo have been highly successful, including when Ruby designed bleached denim to create a collection of jeans and jackets, as well as in 2012 where Ruby’s paintings appeared on Simon’s debut Dior couture show collection. The twosome also collaborated on a Raf Simons Sterling Ruby collection of jackets.
Simons, who first approached Ruby as a curious art collector on the suggestion of a friend. “I saw a couple of his ceramics at art fairs, and I kept thinking, Who is that? Sometimes you see work and it just stays in your brain,” Simons added. “They were the realest thing I had seen in a long time, and they fascinated me.”
