Mission: Calvin Klein is one of the world’s leading designer lifestyle brands with products that resonate globally. Our mission is to grow the brand through delivering sophisticated designs and high quality, innovative and relevant products through superior execution, while staying true ...
Calvin Klein is one of the best known designer names in the world, offering a modern design aesthetic. The Calvin Klein brands — Calvin Klein Collection, Calvin Klein platinum label, Calvin Klein white label, Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear — provide us with the opportunity to market products both domestically and internationally at higher price points, in higher-end distribution channels and to different consumer groups than most of our Heritage Brands business product offerings. Global retail sales of products sold under the Calvin Klein brands were approximately $7.6 billion in over 100 countries in 2012.
We believe that the Calvin Klein brands are powerful, influential and highly relevant, as evidenced by the fact that the Calvin Klein brand was ranked #1 by Women’s Wear Daily in its coveted top 10 list of most-recognized designer brands in December 2012. Innovative marketing and advertising campaigns continue to fuel the global growth of the Calvin Klein brands, highlighted by an expanded use of digital and social media marketing platforms, including the addition of our visually-driven, interactive Tumblr blog, which complements the brand’s editorial and celebrity wardrobing programs, to further consumer awareness and brand appeal.
In order to more efficiently and effectively exploit the development opportunities for each brand, a tiered-brand strategy was established to provide a focused, consistent approach to global brand growth and development. Each of the Calvin Klein brands occupies a distinct marketing identity and position that preserves the brand’s prestige and image. Our brand portfolio includes:
Our in-house design team designs all products and/or controls all design operations and product development and oversees a worldwide marketing, advertising and promotions program for the Calvin Klein brands. In 2012, over $300 million was spent globally in connection with the advertisement, marketing and promotion of the Calvin Klein brand, and these expenses are principally funded by Calvin Klein’s licensees and other authorized users of the Calvin Klein brands.

Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing.
I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Calvin Klein (Fort Lauderdale, FL).
It was easy. Simple Questions Group interview. (6 People including me.) Dress all black and wear Calvin Klein Clothing for the finishing touch. Try to answer questions first. The interview will take 30 minutes and the questions are simply testing your knowledge on good customer service.
