| SUNDAY READING | Justin Morin’s “Klein Calvin”

Justin Morin’s new book, Klein Calvin compiles advertising images Calvin Klein (stemming from these last thirty years) reproduced according to International Klein Blue, blue tint created by the artist Yves Klein.The stylistic obsessions (minimal smart of the New York designer) and themes (the exploration of the body via the anthropometries of French) become entangled fervently to create hybrid images, so fictional as graphic.


Design Research was ‘‘a warm, eclectic, colorful and international version of modernism, one that mixed folk art and Mies van der Rohe, Noguchi and ANDEA sweaters, offering newlyweds and Nobel Prize winners one-stop shopping for tools to eat, sleep, dress, even to party in a beautiful way.’’

Design Research by Benjamin Thompson.
