NEW YORK — Calvin Klein Inc. continues to expand its global presence, including in Asia. Next week, the company will be celebrating growth in the region with its biggest event of the year, in Singapore on April 11.
The multibrand affair, including Calvin Klein Collection, platinum label, Jeans, Underwear and Home, will take place on the grounds of the former Kallang Airport, an architectural landmark since it closed in 1955. The event marks the opening of four new Collection stores in Southeast Asia with long-term licensee Club 21. These will kick off with a store at Singapore’s The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands on Tuesday and a unit at Hong Kong’s Elements mall the following day. The company is also set to open a store at Bangkok’s Central Embassy shopping complex next month, followed in July by another at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.
