  Calvin Klein: A Case Study | Handout
Klein has always been at the forefront of the youth trend in advertising, but in a 1995 campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans, his images of pubescent models in provocative poses caused major controversy and debate when they crossed the line between fashion and pornography.
Klein is not alone in his use of controversial images in advertising.
A Calvin Klein spokesperson claimed that these ads were intended "to capture the same warmth and spontaneity that you find in a family snapshot." The general public disagreed, with numerous experts citing that these ads were pornographic because they featured high definition, sexualized images of young children.

Calvin Klein argues that Warnaco's sales to "unapproveddiscounters" risk changing CK's jeans business from a "full-price wholesalebusiness into a mass-marketing discount operation." While Calvin Kleinapparel has shown up in many discounters' bins over the years, Klein assertsthat Warnaco was authorised only to unload irregulars and productionoverruns at such low-end retailers.

 Calvin Klein, Fashion Designer
Calvin Klein graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1962 at the age of twenty and then worked five years for the Seventh Avenue manufacturer Dan Misstein.
By 1975 Calvin Klein had become a celebrity, and he changed his somewhat homespun earlier image (a 1973 advertisement quoted him as saying about his new collection, "I made a lot of things that go with things.") for a more glamorous one.
His advertisements began to feature photographs by Chris Von Wangenheim, Deborah Turbeville, and Guy Bourdin, who shot a 1976 ad that showed a Calvin Klein silk blouse on a wire hanger, with label visible at the back of the neck, hanging next to a mirror in which a nude woman was reflected.

 Calvin Klein - New York Fashion Designer - Calvin Klein, CK
Calvin Klein kicked off his label with a collection in 1968, when he and childhood buddy/business partner Barry Schwartz launched a line of men’s and women’s coats at retailer Bonwit Teller.
A true lifestyle brand, Calvin Klein also produces eyewear, eveningwear and home collections, and has expanded its sophisticated, high-end apparel line to include career casuals for women, men and kids.
It’s a testament to Klein, who checked out of the company when he and Schwartz sold to Phillips-Van Heusen in 2003, that the brand remains competitive with its peers—and that the consistency continues.

 Calvin Klein Model Travis Fimmel in Miami Beach | South Beach
But then it's a relatively quick hop when your image is plastered all around the world as Calvin Klein's new pony-boy underwear model.
Just two months ago the British Advertising Standards Authority dismissed complaints that the Calvin Klein underwear advertisement hanging on the corner of London's Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street was "indecent, sexually suggestive and demeaning" —concepts which don't seem to register here in South Beach.
Even though Travis is currently working under a multi-million dollar contract with Calvin Klein, he still drives a 1985 Bronco; answers most interview questions with five words or less, and scoffs at celebrity—both his own and others.
