Calvin Klein hires Erika Albies as VP, Calvin Klein By Appointment
Calvin Klein announced on Friday that it has named Erika Albies the Vice President of Calvin Klein By Appointment.
The former VP of Global Fashion Communications at WME/IMG will execute the By Appointment business strategy and client relations, and she will lead and establish the Calvin Klein By Appointment business alongside Michelle Kessler-Sanders, President of Calvin Klein By Appointment and Calvin Klein 205 West 39 NYC, formerly known as Calvin Klein Collection. Albies will be based at the Calvin Klein global headquarters, and she will report to Kessler-Sanders.
Prior to joining Calvin Klein, Albers served at WME/IMG for over a year and launched the first-ever OTT platform that was developed by WME/IMG. The platform marked as the first network to launch exclusively on Apple TV.
The public relations executive also served as PR Manager at Gucci Group, Director of PR at Giorgio Armani, and served as VP of PR at Miu Miu on two different occasions.
Calvin Klein launched its made-to-measure Calvin Klein By Appointment business in January with a 14-piece collection designed by Raf Simons. The made-to-measure service has been offered in the past exclusively for VIP clients and celebrities, and it has been revived to shift focus away from the underwear and jeans business and highlight the brand’s atelier.
Calvin Klein By Appointment launched with a campaign starring models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Natalie Westling, and Lindsey Montero and Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown just weeks before the debut of Raf Simons’ first collection for the brand.
