Calvin Klein Women: the new vision from Raf Simons
Calvin Klein have released their first fragrance – Calvin Klein Women – developd by Chief Creative Officer, Raf Simons.
Devised by the renowened perfumers Annick Menardo and Honorine Blanc, CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN is a play of contrasts, as infinitely varied as the personas of the women who inspire it. A woody floral fragrance, it fuses strength with fragility and freshness with sensuality to ceate a dynamic and modern scent.
Evoking the ethos of CALVIN KLEIN WOMAN, each ingredient is respected and celebrated – the individual
is as vital as the collective, and neither can exist without the other, combined to create an unexpected and unique woody floral – a contradiction in terms. In this fragrance, dynamic and modern, the wearer discovers an innate duality, a constant tension between differing elements, and a marriage of opposites. It represents an olfactory portrait of the multi-layered idea of femininity today.

CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN is a celebration of women, by women. Developed with an all-female cast, the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign champions iconic women of past generations and celebrates heroines of contemporary culture.
Created in partnership by Lloyd & Co. and artist Anne Collier, whose distinct and immediately recognizable photographic artwork also features on both the packaging and the radical flacon design, the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign stars two women helping to shape a profound new Hollywood landscape: LUPITA NYONG’O and SAOIRSE RONAN.
Award-winning actors and voices of their generation, both women are universally recognized for their unique talent, creativity, intelligence and strength of character.
Aspirational figures and inspirations to women around the world, both Nyong’o and Ronan feature in the CALVIN KLEIN WOMEN campaign in a pair of striking and direct portraits by Collier, simultaneously challenging and inviting the observer into the CALVIN KLEIN universe.
You can be any type of woman you want to be. Seeing people doing something that they’re passionate about is inspiring. It encourages you to do the same, to feel the same.” – Saoirse Ronan
In turn, these inspiring women have chosen figures from the past who have inspired them – icons of femininity that have shaped their identities, as creatives, and as women.
“Eartha Kitt and Katharine Hepburn are examples of people who didn’t accept the status quo; they made room for themselves.” – Lupita Nyong’o
