The day has come. A new creative director has been named at Calvin Klein Collection. Veronica Leoni is an Italian designer who founded her own brand QUIRA, and has previously worked at Jil Sander, Phoebe Philo's Celine, The Row and Moncler. Leoni was also an LVMH Prize finalist in 2023. With her classic, modern style of design, she is the perfect fit for Calvin Klein world. The appointment means a return to the runway for the brand after a five year hiatus since Raf Simons exited his position at the end of 2018.

On the announcement, Leoni said, “I’m thrilled and honored to have the opportunity to write a new chapter of the Calvin Klein story. For decades, Calvin Klein interpreted the idea of bold self-expression, and I am willing to empower it with a strong accent on style and creativity. I’m deeply thankful to Eva Serrano for her vision and trust. My career has been marked by inspiring encounters with some of the most visionary women in fashion and she is one of them. I also want to thank PVH CEO Stefan Larsson for the amazing opportunity to celebrate one of the most influential brands of American fashion.” Bring it on. Leoni will begin as creative director in September.
