The brand was founded in 1968 by Calvin Klein and his business partner Barry Schwartz. In 1980s Calvin Klein took the humble jean and turned it into a designer object of desire when the brand name was embroidered on the back-pocket of the jeans.
Simple, clean lines and muted designs became synonymous for the Calvin Klein brand. Also Calvin Klein perfumes became iconic not only for their fragrance compositions but also for the perfect clean designs. In the early 1970s Klein introduced the first fragrances and they still capture the spirit of the decade they were created in.
In the early 1990s Calvin Klein introduced revolutionary fragrances Obsession and Eternity, which have became legendary scents and have solidified the position of Calvin Klein as a leading global brand. The Calvin Klein fragrances are created in collaboration with leading perfumers from around the world and under the auspices of Coty, the world´s leading cosmetic company.
When You Hear the Name Calvin Klein…
… what do you think of? A Calvin Klein handbag? Calvin Klein underwear? Or the iconic Calvin Klein Euphoria fragrance? They’re all the right answers.
The Calvin Klein brand encompasses a broad portfolio of products – you might actually have some of them in your wardrobe or your beauty stash. Calvin Klein is a global lifestyle brand which represents values like bravery and progressive ideals. These reflect in the alluring and often minimalist aesthetic of their fashion. Across their portfolio, Calvin Klein is always a timeless, modern, classic, and provocative brand. However, it would be none of those things without Calvin Klein – the man who was born on 19 November 1942 in Bronx.
Calvin Klein – the Unknown Designer
Apart from the designer’s own talent and effort, the brand Calvin Klein can also attribute part of its success to his parents. Calvin’s father owned a grocery shop while his mother who worked at a dressmaker’s passed her love for fashion and design down onto her son. Calvin’s first artistic expressions came in the form of fashion sketches when he was still a teenager. Later he further developed his talents at a high school which specialised in art and design, and finally confirmed it by graduating from The New York State University in 1963.
How the Calvin Klein Brand Grew
Over the course of the subsequent 5 years, Calvin Klein gained experience before starting his own business. In 1968, he made his mark in the world of fashion when he founded his own company along with his associate Barry Schwarz. They soon became known for their suits and coats, followed by the success of the Calvin Klein sportswear.
Calvin Klein Fashion from A to Z

The brand further expanded in the 1980s and gained even more success with their CK underwear. Even Calvin Klein fragrances became an essential accessory for many customers.
