Calvin Klein Jeans #mycalvins Denim Series, a limited edition, logo driven offering inspired by athletic and urban streetwear will be available exclusively at BT2 Grafton St from Thursday 30th April and online. The global image campaign which features American model and social media star, Kendall Jenner, alongside male model Simon Nessman was shot by fashion photographer Alasdair McLellan and styled by Melanie Ward in New York.
‘Modeling for Calvin Klein Jeans is really a dream come true,’ said Ms. Jenner. ‘I’ve grown up wearing the brand and seeing the iconic advertising in magazines and on billboards featuring some of the world’s top supermodels. To now be a part of that legacy is truly an honor.’ ‘Kendall is a modern beauty who brings her youthful spirit and edge to this special Calvin Klein Jeans campaign,’ said Melisa Goldie, Chief Marketing Officer of Calvin Klein, Inc. “Kendall’s powerful fan base and global reach will further amplify the current cultural conversation surrounding the Calvin Klein Jeans brand and highlight this exciting limited edition.’
This new series, designed by Calvin Klein Jeans’ Global Creative Director, Kevin Carrigan, was influenced and inspired by the success of the #mycalvins social media campaign which Ms. Jenner has participated in alongside an impressive list of models, musicians, athletes, celebrities and influencers from around the world. The campaign encourages fans of the brand to post selfies of themselves wearing Calvin Klein using #mycalvins. To date, the successful campaign has engaged hundreds of global digital influencers from more than 25 countries, reaching approximately 400 million fans and generating over 13 million interactions worldwide.
The new assortment, which is anchored with a modern, cropped take on the ‘Calvin’ logo, is grounded by iconic Calvin Klein jeans, logo tees and sweatshirts, marrying personal style with sporty details. The full women’s offering consists of tees, jeans, denim shorts and jackets, jogger sweatpants, unisex backpacks and hats, in baby blue, washed black and white rinses retailing from €75 to €275. ‘This series is an expression of the athletic trend that’s happening right now,’ said Mr. Carrigan. “I designed an assortment of unisex tees and tops to be mixed with denim in elevated street styles. These are the perfect wardrobe essentials for an active, youthful lifestyle like Kendall’s.’
