Calvin Klein American Classics Campaign Features Andy Warhol, Richard Prince and Sterling Ruby

Visit the original post to see all 6 images from this gallery.

Calvin Klein this week introduces a new campaign, the first under Raf Simons’ creative direction, dubbed American Classics. This isn’t your average project from CK, however, as “It’s a celebration of Calvin Klein’s iconic underwear and jeans; acknowledging their status as Pop and showing them in the world of art,” according to Calvin Klein himself.

Above we get a look at the unique campaign, as styled by Olivier Rizzo and photographed by Willy Vandeperre, as the clothes featured in the shots are meant to strike up conversation with the art. The artwork then comes from famed twentieth century artists including Andy Warhol, Richard Prince and Simons’ favorite, Sterling Ruby. Ultimately, the juxtaposition of the models and their respective pieces of art is explained through text.

Tim Cook Visits ‘Kitchen Stories’ Developers and Furniture Maker Dula on German Trip

Following a trip to France, Tim Cook today toured Germany, where he made a number of stops to visit furniture maker Dula, the developers behind the Kitchen Stories app, and the team at Refinery29.

Cook has been documenting his trip on Twitter, sharing a number of photos at each site. Before leaving France, he made one last stop to visit the Marché Saint-Germain Apple Store, where he met with staff, iOS developers, and Apple customers. It was his second visit to an Apple Store following a stop in Marseille earlier this week.

He then headed to Vreden, Germany, where he met with Dula. Dula is a furniture manufacturer that works with Apple to create some of the furniture and hardware used in Apple’s retail stores.

Cook took a tour of the factory and then headed to Berlin to meet with the developers behind the Kitchen Stories app. Created by two women in 2014, Kitchen Stories is a recipe app that walks users through each step using photos and videos.

During his time at Kitchen Stories, Cook also met with Refinery29 for an exclusive interview where he talked about women in the workplace, diversity, wage gaps, and more.

Cook was specifically questioned about the German start up scene, where just 13.9 percent of lead roles are held by women. According to Cook, improving that rate hinges on a work environment that “encourages and motivates women to participate.” He went on to say that it’s a problem that needs to be tackled early in life, in schools, with young women encouraged to enter the STEM field.

Pay equality was also a subject, and Cook explained that Apple pays all employees equally regardless of gender, something all companies should do.
You know, we’re probably an outsider, but we pay well and we pay 100% the same. We make a long-term evaluation every year, in order to maintain that. And if we only notice once that someone earns only 99.8% of the salary of another, then we do everything we can to make up for it. I think every company should try to do it. It’s just not right and not fair that women still earn so much less than men.

Cook’s full comments can be read over at Refinery29, but the original interview is in German and will need to be translated.

Following his short trip to Germany, Cook will head to Scotland on Wednesday where he will accept an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow.

When life gives you auto exhaust, make ink

AirInk markers are being made in a variety of sizes

There’s a lot of carbon in automobile exhaust. Carbon is also used as a pigment in black ink. The guys at Singapore-based Graviky Labs have combined the one with the other, by harvesting carbon from vehicles’ tailpipes to make their own eco-friendly AirInk. It’s currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign.

Santana Plan Summer ‘Transmogrify’ Tour

Carlos Santana will embark on his Transmogrify Tour this June, adding a new set of live dates to an already packed 2017 schedule.

The guitarist and his band will open the 19-date trek with a two-night stand at Chateau Ste. Michelle in Woodinville, Washington June 23rd and 24th. The trip will include stops in Phoenix, San Antonio, St. Louis and Nashville before wrapping August 20th at the Borgata Spa and Resort in Atlantic City.

Tickets for many shows are already available via Santana's website, while others go on sale February 10th at 10 a.m. EST.

Prior to the Transmogrify Tour, Santana will play a slew of international dates in April before settling in Las Vegas for a stay at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay in May. After a September 11th gig at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California, he'll resume his Vegas residency with shows scheduled through November 12th.

The Transmogrify Tour follows Santana's 2016 reunion with his classic lineup, though the upcoming trek will not feature keyboardist and singer Gregg Rolie, guitarist Neal Schon, percussionist Michael Carabello and drummer Michael Shrieve. Last year, that group played a handful of shows and released a live album and a new studio effort, Santana IV.
