In 1968, an ambitious young upstart from the Bronx named Calvin Klein got his start in the fashion world by opening a tiny boutique in a New York City hotel. Within a year Klein and his understated, elegant designs were making regular appearances in the pages of Vogue and other fashion magazines, and soon Calvin Klein evolved into a multimillion-dollar company. Klein spent the 1970s through the 1990s transforming the fashion industry — kicking off the designer jeans craze and hiring celebrities like Brooke Shields and Mark Wahlberg to model his clothing and underwear collections in racy ad campaigns. Today Klein's empire includes around a dozen brands, including Calvin Klein, the Calvin Klein Collection, and ck Calvin Klein. The Calvin Klein Collection remains the company’s flagship line, with Brazilian design dynamo Francisco Costa in the creative director’s chair since 2003. The label’s high-fashion footwear includes everything from strappy leather sandals and dramatic high-heeled boots to men’s patent leather oxfords and loafers. Costa’s innovative use of unorthodox materials, keen eye, and strong silhouettes imbues these shoes with timeless appeal. In addition to footwear, the Calvin Klein Collection includes men's and women's clothing, eyewear, handbags, and accessories defined by Klein's minimalist aesthetic.

Calvin Klein launched his eponymous label in 1968 with a line of men’s and women's coats designed for the now defunct retailer Bonwit Teller. Since then, the iconic American company has grown to include high-end apparel, designer jeans, underwear, eyewear, eveningwear and home collections, each renowned for their muted color palate and modern yet timeless quality. Undoubtedly one of the great American fashion houses, Calvin Klein is also a pioneer when it comes to advertising and branding. His sultry and often controversial campaigns have helped launch the careers of Kate Moss and Antonio Sabato Jr., and propelled celebrities like Brooke Shields and Mark Wahlberg into fashion icons in their own right. Though Klein sold the line in 2003, his minimalist, form-fitting aesthetic remains at the core of the company's design principle and is what keeps Hollywood tastemakers like Naomi Watts and Gwyneth Paltrow (and many others) as loyal clients, and its designs in the editorial spreads of every magazine from <i>Vogue</i> to <i>Town & Country</i>.
