Erotica In My Calvins
Calvin Klein’s latest “In My Calvins” advertising campaign, promoting the Spring 2016 range, is raising eyebrows over its erotic nature. The risqué Erotica In My Calvins campaign, shot by photographer Harley Weir, features American fashion model and television personality Kendall Jenner, Danish actress Klara Kristin, Australian actress Abbey Lee Kershaw and Dutch artist and model Saskia de Brauw. Jenner’s controversial ad has her suggestively holding a cut citrus fruit, with the words, “I Eat In #MyCalvins.” Kristin’s ads include an up-skirt shot of her wearing a short dress. Kershaw’s work shows her posing with her hand strategically placed in her underwear. An unnamed model is shown with the phrase “I belfry in my Calvins”, with the corresponding rear selfie and jeans zip. Is this a celebration of sexuality or a case of sexual objectification?
Filming was shot by photographer Harley Weir, with fashion editor/stylist Haley Wollens, hair stylist Cyndia Harvey, makeup artist Lauren Parsons, set designer Colin Donahue, actor Klara Kristin, models Abbey Lee, Kendall Jenner and Saskia de Brauw.
