Christy Turlington Burns Returns to Calvin Klein
Supermodel-activist Christy Turlington Burns is returning to Calvin Klein and will be featured in the women’s fall advertising campaign for Calvin Klein Underwear. The campaign was photographed by Mario Sorrenti in Puerto Rico and is inspired by the brand’s signature provocative imagery. The ads highlight an assortment of sleek Calvin Klein underwear essentials. The print and digital advertising will debut in the September magazine issues.
Turlington Burns started working with Calvin Klein by walking in their runway show for the fall 1987 season. The next year, Irving Penn shot Turlington Burns for a Calvin Klein Collection campaign. Shortly after, she became the face of Calvin Klein’s scent Eternity photographed by Bruce Weber. Turlington Burns also worked with other legendary photographers including Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, and Juergen Teller for more advertising campaigns for the Calvin Klein Collection, Calvin Klein Underwear, Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Swimwear, Contradiction fragrance, and three Eternity fragrance campaigns.

Andrew Marc Creates Lifestyle Brand
Andrew Marc has tapped designer Richard Chai to serve as its new creative design consultant. Calling upon the CFDA award-winning designer is all part of the Andrew Marc’s plan to increase its visibility and branch out beyond its beginnings as a men’s outerwear brand. The first Andrew Marc by Richard Chai collection will include men’s and women’s outerwear and sportswear. It will be presented during Chai’s runway show at New York Fashion Week in September.
Chai said in statement, “I am drawn to heritage brands, and I remember having such positive regard for the Andrew Marc brand growing up. I am excited to delve into the DNA of the brand and to work with the in-house team to carve out the future, modern and innovative aesthetic of Andrew Marc.”
