Land Down Under... False E-Mail Scare... Prada's Double Club...

Calvin Klein Inc. held a celebrity-filled party... Retailers are reacting... Fondazione Prada launched The Double Club...

LAND DOWN UNDER: In September, Calvin Klein Inc. held a celebrity-filled party during New York Fashion Week inside a John Pawson structure that also featured a James Turrell light installation. Next month, it’s bringing some of that cool energy to Australia. On Dec. 16, the company will celebrate the spring season with a bash on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbor. Australian actress Abbie Cornish, who stars in Jane Campion’s upcoming movie “Bright Star,” is cohosting the party with Kevin Carrigan, creative director of ck Calvin Klein and Calvin Klein Jeans. The island — once a convict prison and shipyard that offers views of the Sydney skyline and can only be reached by boat — will be turned into a lounge replete with a light installation by Australia Aboriginal artist Jonathan Jones. DJ Stretch Armstrong will spin the tunes on the night. Following past global events in such cities as Shanghai, London and Dubai, CKI will present spring apparel and accessories from its collections.
