Calvin Klein swimsuit models have always been a source of controversy, but the latest controversy comes from Calvin Klein Swimsuit Models, a new blog by model Calvin Klein.
The blog, which is being run by the company’s public relations team, claims that the model, who is from New York, has been photographed in “badly-dresses” and that the swimsuit shots show her “in a state of undress”.
“As the owner of Calvin Klein, I am proud to be an ambassador for this brand, and it is our goal to make our brand better by providing our customers with the freshest, most beautiful, and most empowering fashion,” a statement on the site reads.
“We are working hard to do just that with our new blog, and I hope that this blog serves as a catalyst for the next generation of women to take a stand and tell their story.”‘
Badly-Dressed’ Calvin Klein model caught on camera Calvin Klein’s publicist, Emily Deitch, told the New York Daily News on Wednesday that the models’ clothes were “out of line” and “disfigured”.
“We understand that this is not the first time that Calvin Klein has come under fire for this issue, and we are happy to be corrected,” Deitch told the newspaper.
“The clothing is obviously out of line and that’s what we’re trying to address,” she added.
“The fashion industry is an incredibly difficult industry, and these kinds of incidents do not represent the Calvin Klein brand or the quality of our work.”
I don’t know why she would have been photographed without a swimsuit underneath.
“While Calvin Klein hasn’t commented on the controversy, the company has previously spoken out about the lack of diversity in its models.”
It’s about how you want to dress. “
It’s not about who you are.
It’s about how you want to dress.
And we hope this blog will be a step in the right direction.”
More to come.
