Calvin Klein is an award-winning fashion icon. He is recognized globally as a master of minimalism and has spent his career distilling things to their very essence. His name ranks among the best-known brands in the world, with Calvin Klein, Inc. reaching over seven billion dollars in global retail sales.
Klein studied at the School of Art & Design and Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After a short time working as a designer, in 1968, he launched Calvin Klein, Inc. with childhood friend, Barry Schwartz.
Whether in fashion, fragrance, beauty or his collections for the home, his work has been subtle, sophisticated and possesses a clarity that redefined modern living, and an American point of view. For him, the challenge is to create new things that fit a modern way of life. “It’s about making people look and feel good about themselves and their homes,” he says.
