You may wonder how does Kendall Jenner wear her Calvins but the designer him self doesn’t really care. The man behind the brand had nothing to do with casting the the famous faces of Calvin Klein, but he isn’t really psyched with the choice.
Fashionista reports that on Thursday Klein issued Jenner at the Savannah College of Art and Design when he spoke about how “disappointing” the fashion industry is right now.
In the interview with Fern Mallis, executive director of the Council of Fashion Designers of America, the 73-year-old was asked about the reality star’s involvement in the sexy ads carring his name he said:
“You know, I’m really not that familiar with it. I’m honestly not. I’m sure she’s a lovely young woman. It’s not the kind of thing I would have done, even today.”
PerezHilton adds that C.K actually hates that models get booked primarily because of their digital popularity, continuing:
“Now, models are paid for how many followers they have. They’re booked not because they represent the essence of the designer, which is what I tried to do — they’re booked because of how many followers they have online. I don’t think that, long-term, is going to work. I don’t think that’s a great formula for success for the product you’re trying to sell.”
He also threw some shade at Kim Kardashian West, saying:
“If you take really exquisite photographs of the right people in the right clothes in the right location, and you put it online, that’s fine. Just putting any old clothes on Kim Kardashian, long-term, isn’t going to do a thing.”
