SEOUL-FUL FASHION: Where Calvin Klein Inc. goes, celebrities follow. Chloë Grace Moretz, Kate Bosworth, and models Lara Stone and Matthew Terry are expected to touch down in Seoul next week for CKI’s multibrand event there Thursday, which will be hosted by creative directors Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Kevin Carrigan. For the occasion, CKI is teaming with downtown’s New Museum of Contemporary Art to present a one-night exhibition called “Infinite Loop” in tribute to video art pioneer Nam June Paik. The private event will take in a purpose-built structure on top of the landmark Seoul Station, and will also feature three interactive video installations by Rafaël Rozendaal, Scott Snibbe and the Flightphase collective. The night’s highlight, however, will probably be positioned across from the station: A specially curated program of videos will be displayed on the Seoul Square Media Canvas, the world’s largest LED screen at 23 stories tall.
The celebs won’t be the only ones traveling to South Korea for the event. Others include CKI president and chief executive officer Tom Murry, the New Museum’s Lisa Phillips and Hanneli Mustaparta, who contributes to the official Calvin Klein Tumblr blog.
