Luella Bartley to Bring her Inimitable Style to Calvin Klein Jeans

SEEN waits with bated breath to see what Luella Bartley will bring to Calvin Klein Jeans, an appointment that puts her in charge of all CK denim products, working under Creative Director Pieter Mulier and Chief Creative Officer Raf Simons, who helmed a successful show at NYFW recently, where a twisted take on Americana debuted under sculptures by Sterling Ruby.

Bartley formerly worked briefly with Kate Hillier for Marc by Marc Jacobs from 2013 – 2015, their short time there marked out by their bold Frank Purcell graphics and rebellious style.

Doubtless Calvin Klein will welcome Bartley’s irreverent British twist for the classic American label.
