Phillips is honoured to collaborate with Calvin Klein to celebrate his rich legacy in conjunction with the release of his much-anticipated first book, published by Rizzoli. Together, we have selected three defining photographs to represent three seminal collaborations from his book: Steven Meisel's CK One, New York City, 1994 for Calvin Klein Fragrance; David Sims' Kate, 1993 for Calvin Klein Underwear; and Bruce Weber's Carré Otis, San Francisco, California, 1991 for Calvin Klein Jeans.
These images embody the Calvin Klein brand and its DNA – provocative, rebellious, minimalist, pure, modern – and define an entire generation that experienced the consumer culture of the 1990s. This dedicated offering stands as a testament to Klein's revolutionary approach to fashion advertising and to the power of collaborative creativity.
The three selected works are available for sale for the first time and have been printed for ULTIMATE, a biannual offering of photo-based works exclusive to Phillips. We are excited to present collectors unparalleled access to exclusive photographs created by today's leading image-makers in fashion who have defined and will continue to define key moments in our social history.
