In August 2016, Calvin Klein announced that Belgian designer Raf Simons, former head designer at Jill Sander and Christian Dior, would head its creative division as chief creative officer. One of his tasks at the multi-billion American label was to unify the brand’s aesthetic across its many diffusion lines, one arm being the iconic Calvin Klein Watches & Jewellery.

Known for its modern-yet-timeless designs that come with a progressive edge, devotees love Calvin Klein for its effective use of pure minimalism. Keeping this core element, Raf Simons adds his creative spin to further push the classic designs with greater creative dimension.

And Raf Simons’ imagination and ingenuity materialises in the newer CKWJ releases – they’re bigger, bolder and more colourful than ever.
