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. Then the pair designed their own line, Hiller Bartley, which was informed by hunting, Savile Row tailoring and punk. Doubtless Calvin Klein will welcome Bartley’s irreverent British twist for the classic American label.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
