Banned Calvin Klein Jeans Spring-Summer 2009 Ad Campaign
Calvin Klein is pushing those sensitive American censors with their Spring-Summer 2009 Jeans ad campaign. The TV commercial shot by Steven Meisel in grainy quality has been banned in America. The campaign stars male and female models — including Anna Jagodzinska, Anna Selezneva, Natasha Poly, Edita Vilkeviciute, Carson Parker, Danny Schwarz, Vladimir Ivanov and new face Mikus Lasmanis — who aren’t wearing much more than their Calvins . The 15- and 30-second spots will initially be exclusive online at calvinkleinjeans.com, the home of the brand’s future U.S. e-commerce site. The commercial will be the site’s main attraction until the completed site launches in the summer, WWD reports. Calvin Klein is working on an edited version of the commercial that will air on cable, while outside the U.S., countries such as Italy, France, Spain and Germany will show the uncensored version.
