Calvin Klein will be releasing a capsule collection with BLACKPINK member Jennie on 10 May. In a short announcement on its social media pages on 3 May, the brand revealed that the collection will be the first ever of the K-pop idol for Calvin Klein.
Jennie is one of the four members of the iconic all-girl K-pop group BLACKPINK, which made its debut with the single album Square One in August 2016.
BLACKPINK has since become one of the greatest bands of all time, with multiple chart-toppers and Guinness records. In April 2023, the group became the first Asian act to headline the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

The Spring 2023 campaign features Jennie along with model Kendall Jenner, musician FKA twigs, and actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Michael B. Jordan.
In the campaign photos, all of which are in black-and-white, Jennie is seen sporting denim in a 1990s-inspired design. The photos show the singer in the brand’s Geo Lace triangle bra, Modern Cotton bralette and Sheer Marquisette.
