Calvin Klein’s New Collection Celebrates 40 Years of Making Denim

T-shirts, jeans, jackets and even keychains — all printed with an iconic photograph of Brooke Shields.


It’s been 40 years since Calvin Klein introduced the world to the concept of designer denim, so it makes sense that the clothing brand’s current creative director Raf Simons would want to commemorate such an important milestone. His newest collection, Calvin Klein Jeans Est. 1978, does just that — and fits in well with the steady stream of Americana-inspired clothes Simons has been delivering since he took the helm about two years ago. It includes everything from key-chains to t-shirts, hoodies, jeans, denim jackets and a backpack, all printed or embroidered with a black-and-white image from Brooke Shields’ now iconic 1980s ad campaign for the jeans. (If your personal aesthetic doesn’t allow for pictures of a teenage supermodel to be splashed somewhat liberally on your clothing, there are also more straightforward, indigo-dyed versions of the denim jacket, jeans, and a western shirt available for pre-order.)

Prices range from $30 for the keychains to $450 for a solid puffer jacket. It’s all worth exploring, but you can take a look at a few of our favorites below.
