Calvin Klein, the iconic fashion brand, has announced its newest face for its underwear line – actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The 31-year-old British actor, who has previously fronted campaigns for designer brands like Givenchy, will be staring in steamy advertisements for the label’s underwear line.
Taylor-Johnson, a well-known style icon who has been recognized for his fashion sense by GQ, expressed his excitement about the new role. “It was great fun,” he said in an interview with Esquire. “I think there’s a level of nerves and expectations when you’re going to be photographed in your underwear, but quite honestly, I’ve only ever worn Calvins, so I just felt honored and thrilled to be part of it.”
This latest campaign is not the first time that Taylor-Johnson has been associated with a designer brand’s fashion line. In 2017, he became the face of Gentleman Givenchy’s fragrance. The ad campaign, directed by his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson, was a reflection of a modern gentleman and an authentic representation of the prestigious house. Speaking about the honor, Taylor-Johnson told GQ, “It’s a real honor and privilege that I take with pride. [Givenchy] is a prestigious House and I am happy to be associated with a product that can reflect the ways of a modern gentleman.”
Beyond his designer endorsements, Taylor-Johnson is also known for his sense of style. He has been recognized as one of GQ’s best-dressed celebrities, and fashion designer and “Nocturnal Animals” director Tom Ford once commented on his style, “Aaron has always had a great ability to mix streetwear and classic tailoring…and make it look young and fresh. He also has a great body and wears very natural and self-assured clothes, which is one of the most important factors in looking good.”
Calvin Klein is a globally recognized brand that began as a coat shop in New York in 1968. Since then, the brand has grown to become a leading fashion house synonymous with timeless style, versatility, and comfort for both men and women. The brand’s iconic underwear line has been a bestseller for decades and has been worn by some of the biggest names in Hollywood and sports.
Taylor-Johnson’s addition to Calvin Klein’s list of celebrity brand ambassadors, which includes stars like Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber, comes as a surprise to none as he fits perfectly into the brand’s philosophy of authenticity and simplicity. The actor and Calvin Klein’s underwear line are a match made in heaven and the forthcoming campaign is sure to set the internet ablaze.
