LEGENDARY DESIGNER CALVIN KLEIN ON CNN’S ‘TALK ASIA’

The Calvin Klein name is one that's truly global - after all, millions of people around-the-world wear it on their waistbands every day. But what's become of the man who founded the brand in the 1960s and grew it into the fashion empire it is today? Since selling the company that bears his name more than a decade ago, Klein has chosen to spend more time out of the media spotlight, and rarely grants interviews.

 

Next month on ‘Talk Asia’, the legendary designer sits down with CNN’s Mallika Kapur in Mumbai, India, to discuss the changing face of luxury and why he believes the future of fashion lies in Asia. He reveals the secret of his success, what he's most proud of and his thoughts on the power of social media. In this candid interview he also shares his opinion on iconic Calvin Klein advertising campaigns from Brooke Shields to Justin Bieber, why he hates selfies and whether he prefers boxers or briefs!
