Calvin Klein unveiled its Spring 2017 men’s underwear campaign today, which the brand dubbed “Revelation,” following Sunday night’s Academy Awards.
It stars the men from ‘Best Picture’ winner “Moonlight” including Mahershala Ali, Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders and Trevante Rhodes.
Photographer Willy Vanderperre shot the movie’s stars for the ads, which come after Raf Simons took over as Calvin Klein’s creative director. The photographer describes the campaign as a mix of portraits and fashion images, with each shot “standing as a character study in its own right.”
“Moonlight”, directed by Barry Jenkins, was awarded ‘Best Picture’ on Monday and tells the story of a young black man as he navigates his way through a rough Miami neighbourhood and struggles to find his place in the world.
