Tailor Made

Calvin Klein’s new chief creative officer, Raf Simons, will make made-to-measure services—usually only available to celebrities—open to all. The announcement of Calvin Klein By Appointment was tied to the end of the worldwide Women’s Marches. The range “is driven by character; it’s about a woman feeling empowered and being her own person in what she wears,” said Pieter Mulier, creative director at the brand.

Top Talent

Expo Chicago has put together a dream team of top curators for its 2017 edition. Among those on board are Centre Pompidou’s Florence Derieux, the Hammer Museum’s Ali Subotnick, Dallas Contemporary’s Justine Ludwig, and the Palais de Tokyo’s Katell Jaffrès.

History in the Making

Several museums have begun collecting signs from Saturday’s Women’s Marches. The move assuages fears that the signs, considered by many to be historically and artistically significant, would be lost.

Westward Expansion

New York-based Marianne Boesky Gallery will open a new, Annabelle Selldorf-designed satellite location in Aspen. “I have long been inspired by Aspen’s extreme landscape, and the creativity that it has fueled among artists, musicians, writers, and so many other individuals of diverse backgrounds and interests,” Marianne Boesky said.
