CALVIN IN JAPAN: A desolate West Side warehouse turns into a hot lounge for a night, or a rave is thrown atop 7 World Trade Center: A Calvin Klein party is never just another soiree. The brand's upcoming event to present the entire fall Calvin assortment in Tokyo on May 21 will be no different. For the occasion, the company is collaborating with renowned architect Shinichi Ogawa, who is building a temporary structure for the event billed as the "World of Calvin Klein." Ogawa is working closely with Calvin Klein's visual team and its vice president of creative services, Dale Rozmiarek, to make sure the space will ooze Calvin. The house will be erected on the grounds of the Japanese capital's Meiji Jingu Gaien Museum and, inside will be showcased live models and a mix of clothes, accessories, beauty and home products from the different divisions. But the minimalist magic won't last — the house will be disassembled in just one day.

BERGDORF BLING: Vintage jewelry house Fred Leighton is making its debut at Bergdorf Goodman on May 1, marking the first time the precious baubles will be available at a retail location outside Leighton's own New York and Las Vegas stores. "It is a culmination of years of talking with each other on and off, first under previous ownership and then again about a year ago," said Fred Leighten owner Ralph Esmerian, who acquired the 36-year-old company last April. Esmerian said the brand would start on the first floor among the other fine jewelry pieces, but would have room to expand. "I want to start at a ground level and test ourselves. Fred Leighton has never officially been in a huge luxury environment outside of our own stores. This is a first....We'll be tailoring the look of our jewelry to a Bergdorf kind of clientele."
