Is this SS16’s most star-studded campaign yet?

This season, we’ve already seen a fair few actors, musicians and creatives of other trades pose for brands’ advertising campaigns: Jaden Smith for Louis Vuitton, The xx’s Oliver Sim for Dior Homme, and The Matrix director Lana Wachowski and RuPaul’s Drag Race star Milk (AKA Don Donigan) for Marc Jacobs.

Last night Calvin Klein joined the party, unveiling its SS16 campaign and – shot by Tyrone Lebon – it might be the season’s most star-studded one yet. FKA twigs and Kendrick Lamar feature in the line-up alongside fellow musicians Justin Bieber, Fetty Wap and Joey Bada$$, and models Kendall Jenner, Abbey Lee Kershaw (also an actress), Adwoa Aboah (also an activist and casting director) and Saskia de Brauw (also an artist and author). 

Alongside these established names, there are some “street cast up-and-comers” including Daniel Hivner, Jan Gatewood, Aiden Dare, Rene Ferry, Sophia Tatum, Laura Sorensen and Petra Lajuan. Lebon’s images of his subjects reflect the intimacy of his portrait work, for which he is known. Check out the gallery above to see the full campaign.
