Your love affair with Calvin Klein may have started with a well cut denim clad Justin Beiber artfully intertwined with super babe Lara Stone for the 2015 #mycalvins campaign, or perhaps a 15 year old Brooke Shields wrapped in her Calvins during the early 1980’s, but for me the most iconic moment was the 1992 imagery featuring a young and pulchritudinous Mark Wahlberg, embracing a then 17 year Kate Moss, photographed by Herb Ritts for the 1992 underwear campaign.
No matter how you look at it, Calvin Klein as a brand is not only iconic for its classic clean cut collections, but equally its clean cut iconic imagery. And let’s be honest there’s been more than once that I may or may not have decked my bedroom walls with an underwear clad Marky Mark.
You can only imagine how excited I was to recently be offered the opportunity to photograph an editorial featuring the Spring 2018 Calvin Klein Swimwear collection. Lycra bralettes stitched with our favourite trim, uber cool mesh inlaid one pieces with sporty overtones, and perfectly cut separates that will make their way into our summer must-have hit list.
Thanks to all of the elements above, and our super babe Dutch import Miss @lisadenb, my task was made a little easier. If you’re anything like us you’ll be counting down the days to the swim season. And let’s be honest sisters, not even the 4 weeks until summer could get between us and our Calvins ..
