NEW YORK, NY, SEPTEMBER 12, 2018 – Calvin Klein, Inc. hosted a private dinner in New York City last night to celebrate the launch of CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN, the first CALVIN KLEIN fragrance to be developed under the vision of Chief Creative Officer, Raf Simons.
The event took place at iconic restaurant Balthazar in SoHo where the fragrance campaign, starring award-winning actors Saoirse Ronan and Lupita Nyong’o, was brought to life with a pink-hued carpet reminiscent of the television campaign and larger-than-life cut-outs of the campaign talent.
Notable guests in attendance included Calvin Klein, Inc. Chief Creative Officer, Raf Simons, Saoirse Ronan, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kate Bosworth, Gwendoline Christie, Indya Moore, Katherine Langford, , Kelsey Asbille, Khalid, Rami Malek, Rowan Blanchard, Billie Eilish, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, A$AP Rocky , Odell Beckham, Jr., James Harden, Liya Kebede, Halima Aden, Fernanda Ly, Paloma Elsesser, Tavi Gevinson, Judith Light, Akeem Rasool, Cailee Spaeny , and Moses Sumney, among others.
The new CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign was directed by artist Anne Collier and features actors Lupita Nyong’o and Saoirse Ronan, both voices of their generation. In the print campaign, they are featured in a pair of striking and direct portraits, positioned next to chosen figures from the past who have inspired them – icons of femininity that have shaped their identities, as creatives, and as women. Lupita is featured next to singer and multi-dimensional performer Eartha Kitt and celebrated American actor Katharine Hepburn, and Saoirse is featured with award-winning actor Sissy Spacek and award-winning singer and civil rights activist Nina Simone.
Women around the world are invited to join the campaign on social media by using the hashtag #IAMWOMEN to share a photo of females in their lives that have shaped them into who they are today. In the spirit of the campaign, event guests were invited to have bottles of CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN engraved with the name of a woman who inspires them.
