Simons will head up all brands under the Calvin Klein umbrella globally including Calvin Klein Collection, Calvin Klein Platinum, Calvin Klein, Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Underwear and Calvin Klein Home brands.
"Not since Mr. Klein himself was at the company has it been led by one creative visionary, and I am confident that this decision will drive the Calvin Klein brand and have a significant impact on its future. Raf’s exceptional contributions have shaped and modernised fashion as we see it today and, under his direction, Calvin Klein will further solidify its position as a leading global lifestyle brand."
The news follows the appointment of his replacement at Dior, ex-Valentino co-creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Calvin Klein’s latest campaign stars the likes of Margot Robbie, Bella Hadid and Kate Moss.
