Calvin Klein: Growing up, I did not really look at fashion magazines. I never was a kid obsessing over fashion, I was always more interested in the bigger picture. Movies often played in my head. There were narratives and characters. This is probably why as a kid, I responded to Calvin Klein. What he did was totally different from everyone else. He worked with the best! Avedon. Weber. Ritts. I remember the Brooke Shields ads, then the ones with Andie MacDowell and Shari Belafonte. Then Obsession happened with Josie Borain. They were mini films. I'd hear just a drop of the intro and run to the tv. They were an event. It was a world that was totally foreign to me, and that's what I loved. Of all the fashion ads which I consumed voraciously, Calvin Klein always holds strong, especially the early ones when the focus was most strong. They were time defining and still relevant and alive today.
