Singer, dancer, model, actress and also fashion designer? Global K-pop idol and fashion icon Jennie from BLACKPINK tries her hand at fashion design with a new collaborative collection with Calvin Klein! Jennie has been an ambassador for the American sportswear brand since 2021, and she’ll be releasing her debut capsule collection with the brand this May 2023!
Calvin Klein first teased the collaboration on their socials, with a video featuring nothing more than Jennie’s silhouette:
Introducing the first ever #JENNIE capsule collection for Calvin Klein. Available May 10th #calvinklein
But it seems that eagle-eyed fans have already been anticipating the official announcement of the collaboration ever since the Jennie herself was seen sporting pieces from the new collection at one of the soundchecks for BLACKPINK’s BORN PINK WORLD TOUR:

While there’s little news as to how the pieces in the collection will look like, the pieces are designed by Jennie herself, and reflect her own personal style. The collection is called Jennie for Calvin Klein and will feature various underwear sets, denim, t-shirts, fleece and knit items; all featuring custom branding and logo with Jennie’s own handwriting. There even appears to be bright lilac-coloured pieces included in the collection—something you don’t often see in the monochrome Calvin Klein aesthetic.
The Jennie for Calvin Klein capsule Collection will be available in Singapore on 10th May at 9pm online, and 11th May in stores. Sign up on Calvin Klein’s website here for more details and to be notified once the collection drops.
Date: From 10th May 2023 onwards
Address: All Calvin Klein stores
