I think I have seen it at Bloomies as well. Upscale retailers in Europe carry CKC: I was just in Nice, France and they had an entire section at Galeries Lafayette. CKC can sometimes also be found in factory outlets, such as Filene's or Century 21 (but never at the Calvin Klein outlet stores) if you happen to go at the right time. As for luggage, zappos.com used to carry some items but they seem to have scaled down to women's shoes only.
Most CKC articles are made in Italy, although one of my newer CKC suits, which has an incredible fit, is "Made in Czech Republic". I also have an older cashmere sweater from when Mr. Klein himself was still onboard (ca. 2003) that is "Made in Hong Kong".http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/...ein+Collectionhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_Klein_Collection
Thanks! I concur with all of the above; they've had a long history of assorted licenses, various manufacturers (from Gruppot GFT to Vestimenta to older, regional licenses in the past), and various quality lines.
In any case, what I'm looking for is primarily the mainline runway accessories/bags designed under Zucchelli, post 2004 or so, which have always been made in Italy, and which probably were only originaly sold in the main boutiques or stockists.
I remember seeing a few of these on Zappos; I never really loved the styles they had and so never pulled the trigger.
