Celebrating his Spring 2018 collection for CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC, Raf Simons hosted a techno-thumping bash. The satin-clad, Andy Warhol stamped runway offerings premiered Thursday night in the same space. Like last season, the ground floor of the brand's midtown offices was transformed into a Sterling Ruby jewel-box. As Simons offered a cinematic view of America on the runway, the party felt like an extended dreamscape. Heavy baselines pulsated through the nearly pitch black dance floor, where lasers illuminated the crowd. While the guests were undoubtedly noteworthy, including Baz Luhrman, Paris Jackson, Brooklyn Beckham, Mert Alas, Bernard Sumner, and Michel Gaubert, the night was all about the energy. Simons enlisted the likes of techno maestro Nina Kraviz and DJ Clara 3000 to orchestrate the soundtrack, as guests danced into the early hours.
