Calvin Klein Inc. is an American fashion house founded by the fashion designer Calvin Klein at the end of the 1960s. The company is headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. The brand is famous for its minimalism and classic style, and helped launch the craze for designer jeans in the 1970s when Klein began adding his name on the back pocket. Today, Calvin Klein is known worldwide for their jeans, casual collections, underwear collections and perfumes. Watches and a jewelry collection became part of the brand’s offering in 1997. The company’s “ck” logo is as recognizable as its brand name and adorns many products in their line. On August 2. 2016, Calvin Klein Inc. announced the appointment of Raf Simons as Chief Creative Officer of the brand, effective immediately.
The company’s first perfume, Calvin, was launched in 1981. Calvin Klein has since launched a series of successful perfumes that, for many, capture the spirit of the decades in which they were introduced, including Obsession (1985 for Women, 1986 for Men), Eternity (1988 for Women, 1989 for Men), ck One (one of the first fragrances marketed as unisex, in 1994), and Euphoria (2005 for Women, 2006 for Men).
