Calvin Klein´s Spring 2017 men´s underwear campaign
Moonlight won three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Actor in a Supporting Role for Mahershala Ali and Writing for Barry Jenkins (screenplay) and Tarell Alvin McCraney (story). Its main actors have been revealed as the new faces of Calvin Klein´s Spring 2017 men´s underwear campaign. Mahershala Ali, Ashton Sanders, Alex Hibbert and Trevane Rhodes were snapped by photographer Willy Vanderperre for designer Raf Simons´ first underwear-only project since he became chief creative officer of the brand. By the way, the campaign was shot back in January.
On the set of the campaign shoot, as a day was coming to an end, and knowing that his group of friends and colleagues were soon to part, Mahershala Ali looked around and said, “It’s only a shame that this isn’t a franchise. It would be so great to get everyone back together.” They all laughed. But he went on. “I did have the idea that we do a prequel, though,” he said. “It’d be called Sunlight.”
Celebrities in the campaigns
In the past Calvin Klein used celebrities in their campaigns. Do you remember Justin Bieber or Kendall Jenner? For this campaign they decided for less famous actors. Check out their amazing black and white pictures that will leave you speechless. We absolutely love them!
