Calvin Klein window installation, NYC
Calvin Klein flagship
East 60th Street
The windows of the Calvin Klein Collection store on East 60th Street in New York are showing a little love, devoting pairs of pillows to some of the world’s most celebrated couples. Not just an act of whimsy, the installation is a response to a particular work - ‘Pillow Talk Bed’ - by artist Jonathan Horowitz, which features in his retrospective currently on at MoMA’s PS1 space.

Horowitz’s bed is adorned with a rotating selection of ‘Pillow Talk Cases’ emblazoned with the names of a famous couple – from Barack and Michelle to Lindsay and Sam, R2-D2 and C-3PO to John and Yoko. The names of each couple are silk-screened on Calvin Klein Home pillowcases in a unique font, appropriate in some way to the pair’s character.
In the spirit of coupling up, Calvin Klein’s New York flagship has devoted its windows to a display of the pillows too, on show until March 23rd and a limited number of the cases are available to buy from the Calvin Klein Collection store, the PS1 store and the Art Production Fund who were the happy couple's matchmaker.
