Kat Su, Designer at Calvin Klein
Kat Su is a designer for Calvin Klein Underwear where she works mainly in women’s sleepwear, as well as with various other special projects. Most of her Are.na channels are evolving mood boards that she keeps to research new designs and collections; since her process for accumulating and categorizing images is both instinctual and systematic, her channels feel at once expansive and self-contained. She can’t share much about the finished products, since they are owned by Calvin Klein, but it’s easy to get an idea of them just from her research. That’s what attracted me to her channels in the first place—sifting through them feels like watching an idea take form. I asked her to elaborate on her research and design process, and we struck up the below correspondence over email.
