Australia‘s Advertising Standards Bureau has asked Calvin Klein to remove billboards from the autumn/winter 2010 Jeans X ad campaign after it received 50+ complaints that the images glamorize rape and violence. Three of the ads, which are to be taken down from billboards in Sydney and Melbourne, show model Lara Stone surrounded by shirtless men with her head laying in one man’s lap while another appears to be climbing over her.

It’s not every day I come across a fragrance that can be worn year round, but Calvin Klein Beauty is appropriate for summer, fall, and whenever feels right.

So I did, and that became the ad … I did feel good about the way I looked, so it was easy and—well, a guy looks better to me with no clothes on than with clothes! How’s that?”
Come fall, Calvin Klein Legwear will launch Ultra Fit, a line of control tights and leggings. The opaque jersey tights and leggings will have a a ribbed control top, flat seams, and a comfortable, wide waistband that stays flat against the stomach. Ultra Fit is meant to give the wearer a sleek and clean appearance. Now you might be asking yourself: “Isn’t it a little late for Calvin Klein to get into the leggings game? Didn’t leggings hit the fashion graveyard?” Keep reading »
