Calvin Klein is a New York based fashion house that breathes new life into the Eyewear industry
The introduction of Calvin Klein to the fashion industry reads like a dream. In 1968 they started as a coat company with only $10,000. One year later the brand founder – Calvin Klein – was on the cover of Vogue. Their collection of coats and dresses had made a big impression on the fashion forward New York women.
By the early 1970’s, Calvin Klein began introducing other collections under their name, including lingerie, and women’s sports wear. The collections were so intriguing that they earned the designer the Coty American Fashion Critics’ Award in 1973, 1974 and 1975. At that time, Klein was the youngest designer to ever be recognized with this important award.
The end of the decade brought big change to Calvin Klein as they began adding shoes, belts, sheets and sunglasses to their now famous name. Menswear and jeans were also conquered and the company began seeing an annual revenue of over $100 million.
It is Calvin Klein who first fueled the designer jean craze that dominated the ‘80’s when his now iconic logo was first branded on the back pocket. Seemingly occurring due to a misunderstanding, the logo infused jeans became part of a fashion craze.
The success of Calvin Klein continued to grow throughout the ‘80’s and featured an underwear collection for men that made wearing my “Calvins” take on a whole new meaning. Their introduction of the boxer brief in the ‘90’s is said to be one of the biggest revolutions in the fashion industry.
Today Calvin Klein is still associated with its high end jeans and classic fragrances. They also expand on their brand with a high quality collection of stunning sunglasses and eyewear.
Calvin Klein sunglasses are unmistakable with their funky shapes and sharp color contrasts. You’ll find classic black and browns lens sunglasses, but also an array of pink, blue and even green tints.
The sunglasses designed by Calvin Klein take your eyes on a journey of fashion. Frames are featured in unusual shades such as plum, azure blue, lilac and a hot red wild fire. These unique coloring choices allow for more diversity when you are choosing the right sunglasses for your summer time adventures.
Calvin Klein is not shy about showing off these amazing colors either. Wide opaque rims give way to darker shaded temples. The effect is stunning and sophisticated and makes all who adorn them look like a Hollywood movie star.
Calvin Klein has been epitomizing chic high fashion since the brand was first introduced. Never afraid to break boundaries, the sunglasses in their collection will inspire you to break yours.
