Million Worth of Justin Bieber-Endorsed Wholesale Bikini Rendered Obsolete
Justin Bieber, flaunting. lingerie china Photo: Calvin Klein Raf Simons is making his hugely anticipated debut as creative director at Calvin Klein next week at New York Fashion Week. In the run-up to the February 10th runway show, he quietly dropped a lookbook of new Calvin Klein made-to-measure items, and today, the brand revealed a new logo.
It’s basically the same, but Wholesale Bikini kind of different? Maybe? The letters are mostly capitals instead of mostly lowercase. Art director and graphic designer Peter Saville is the man behind the sleek, skinny black and white letters, and for the most part, it’s all great and chic.
The change does, however, render the brand’s logo-heavy underwear — on which Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner fans reportedly spent nearly $69 million last year — obsolete. The cotton briefs and bras currently lining the walls of your local Urban Outfitters, featuring elastic bands stamped with the now-old logo, are now old, but still too new to be vintage.
So while probably frustrating for anyone who invested heavily in Calvin Klein underwear in 2016, it’s actually kind of brilliant to change the logo and make everyone spend $69 million all over again.
