With models culled from fashion outpost IMG, racks of Calvin Klein clothes, and an art and edit team dancing barefoot in a cavernous studio in Manhattan’s Union Square—no one would suspect the September 15 fashion shoot took months of planning to bring together Marchon Eyewear’s arsenal of Calvin Klein brands: Calvin Klein Collection, ck Calvin Klein and the hot newbie of the gang, Calvin Klein Jeans. From the first meeting with Editor-in-Chief James J. Spina where he sketched out his vision for the cover, down to a last minute clothing pull from Marchon’s product gal Cheryl Rosario, this shoot set itself apart from the typical 20/20 photo feature. Feast on our Behind the Seens buzz from the day to get a taste of the rocking spirit we all felt on set.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve seen some pretty interesting things during clinic time. I recently had the amazing experience of meeting a young man with albinism. In the United States and Europe, there are only one in 18,000 to 20,000 people who have some type of albinism. He was only the second patient I have had the opportunity to work with, and the first Caucasian male. I decided to research the condition.
There’s an internet eyewear retailer whose advertising claims to dispel the “myths” of internet eyewear purchases. Here’s one. “Myth: Online glasses compromise on quality. While there are certain online retailers that sell less-than-quality products, there are plenty of low quality products at retailers that sell at brick and mortar locations. All you need to do is make sure you do your research.” Was that supposed to be reassuring?
