The ultra cool new collection from Calvin Klein Jeans features everything from comfort sweats to your new must-have denim staple pieces and is guaranteed to have your off duty look sorted. The brand, which is credited with escalating the careers of some of the world’s most famous models including Kate Moss, Brooke Shields and Christy Turlington, has chosen model of the moment, Kendall Jenner to front their latest campaign, the #mycalvins denim series. We caught up with Kendall to find out how she feels about working with such an iconic brand and why boxing is her workout secret weapon…
Kendall, you are one of the most talked about models in the world right now. How has your life changed over the past few years?
Kendall Jenner: My life has changed a lot. I have a huge family that I’m very close to, so not seeing them as much as I used to is hard, but I get to go home every once in a while and see and hang out with them so it’s fine – and I’m doing what I like!
What is it that you love about the Calvin Klein Jeans brand?
KJ: I grew up seeing ‘Calvin Klein’ and knew it to be a brand that was very cool. You see their ads all over magazines and billboards and the images are always so cool and beautiful. Given that history, I think it’s awesome to now be a part of such an iconic brand.
What comes to mind when you think of Calvin Klein Jeans?
KJ: I really love how comfortable their jeans are and because they fit so amazingly.
When it comes to style, is there anyone or anything in particular that inspires you?
KJ: I’m still 19, so I feel like my style is still developing. I find myself wearing jeans and t shirts and leather jackets most often. I find style inspiration just traveling around the world and being in New York, London, Paris, and seeing all of these different places and people with such cool style and edge. I think that I pick up a lot from just traveling.
What’s your routine for staying in such great shape?
KJ: I work out with a trainer when I’m in L.A., and I love boxing. I go to the gym whenever I can find the time, but boxing is something that just keeps you moving and makes you forget that you’re actually working out because you’re so into the boxing part of it and that keeps you focused on what you’re doing next.
What is one thing most people would be surprised to know about you?
KJ: People would be surprised to know that I’m actually very shy. When I first get to know someone, I have to get really warmed up to become, and reveal, my full self.
