about

Calvin Klein (white label) women’s better sportswear is produced under a license agreement with a joint venture between Kellwood Company and G.A.V. This career-inspired sportswear collection debuted at retail for Spring 2004, is marketed under the Calvin Klein brand name and is positioned as the opening price-point for all Calvin Klein brands.

Calvin Klein women’s better sportswear offers a complete lifestyle collection that takes her from day to evening. A modern interpretation of classic Calvin Klein, the line is a mix of feminine and masculine details that echo the heritage of the brand. The updated classic silhouettes create a seamless collection that offers a perfect mix of a career and casual elements, making Calvin Klein an ideal wardrobe-building line.

Specialty retail Calvin Klein stores, designed by New York architecture firm Lynch/Eisinger/Design have been opened at Lenox Square in Atlanta, Beverly Center in Los Angeles, Cherry Creek Mall in Denver, Natick Collection in Natick, MA, The Mall at Partridge Creek in Michigan and Aventura Mall in Aventura, Florida. An additional eight stores also designed by Lynch/Eisinger/Design are set to open in 2008. There are also several Calvin Klein Outlet stores, mostly located within factory outlet malls in the US, that sell the white label sportswear and sometimes the ck lines at reduced prices but do not carry the Collection lines.

The Look

Calvin Klein has been presenting collections for 30 years. He is a most devout modernist, a believer in form-follows-function thinking. Each season his models walk down the catwalk in clothes created as a quiet protest against fashion's outlandish theatricality.
He has never dabbled in beaded headgear, animal headdresses, rubber cocktail dresses. So no matter what Gaultier or Galliano are showing, he keeps his palette defiantly muted, his lines aggressively clean, and his style grounded in reality.
Calvin Klein's aim, as he himself said, "I want to combine the refinement and elegance of the couture tradition with my belief that clothes should be realistic and wearable." His aim is understated sophistication using luxurious fabrics like silk, suede and cashmere. He uses no fussy detail and uses sober colours that appeal to both men and women. He often takes elements of a man's wardrobe and tailors them for women.

Who Wears It

Owen Wilson, Ashton Kutcher, Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Connolly , Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Watts and Katie Holmes. Oscar-winner Hilary Swank has a close relationship with both Klein and Costa, and has recently modeled for Calvin Klein underwear.
