Calvin Klein is a lifestyle brand for modern, uniquely sophisticated individuals – offering tasteful, timeless looks interpreted through the Calvin Klein aesthetic. Calvin Klein began in 1968 when longtime friends Calvin Klein and Barry Schwartz opened a women’s coat business. The small enterprise quickly expanded to include sportswear and a complete ready-to-wear collection. Later, the brand went on to revolutionize how the world viewed – and bought – denim and underwear through its cutting-edge designs and advertising. Today, the company continues to be driven by the timeless yet modern sophistication of Mr. Klein’s original creative philosophy, and has over 25 product lines under the various Calvin Klein brands.
