  • How to get the Kardashians' Calvin Klein campaign looks for less than $100

    The chic Western ensembles worn by the Kardashians for Calvin Klein‘s fashion campaign are now available at Macy’s. The best news? Each item is on sale for less than $100.You can snatch up Kim and Kylie‘s two-tone black and blue Western shirts, worn in the campaign, for only $83 (originally $118) and buy Kourtney and Kendall‘s side-stripe jeans (available in white, khaki, blue, and black) for $90 (originally $128). Note, these sale prices won’t last long (Macy’s VIP 30 percent off sale ends Sunday, March 25). However, even if you miss the sale, the retail prices are a steal compared to the brand’s main collection label, Calvin Klein 205W39NYC, whose prices typically run into three or four digits.The Kardashians were some of the celebrities tapped for the all-star #MyCalvins model cast, which began to roll out last November. They were a natural fit for the Calvin Klein Jeans campaign, which was centered on family, Americana, and the Western spirit. “Family is everything,” Kim told Vogue.com, “so when we’re all together doing something special like this, it means so much.” Kaia Gerber, Presley Gerber, Solange, and A$AP Mob were all part of the campaign series, too, with the latest one featuring Paris Jackson, Sadie Sink, and Millie Bobby Brown.Ever since Raf Simons, Calvin Klein’s chief creative officer, took the helm in 2017 and introduced his two-tone Western shirts, they have easily become the most coveted items of the year. The shirts became such a hit that celebrities from Margot Robbie to First Lady Melania Trump both jumped onboard. But Robbie’s and Trump’s shirts were from the higher-priced Calvin Klein 205W39YC line and would have cost you $695. Now, you can get almost exactly the same version for what is essentially 88 percent off.This is a strategic move by Simons and the Calvin Klein brand to further amplify their selling power by offering a popular runway item at an attainable, consumer-friendly price.Click through the gallery to shop the items now, and head to Macys.com for the complete Calvin Klein Jeans collection.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • Fashion week in Russia came with many twists—including the gender fluid collection of a South African designer  • Evil eye gloves are the new pussy hates at the March for Our Lives  • Meghan Markle recycles her Victoria Beckham engagement-shoot sweater for Northern Ireland TripFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Calvin Klein's runway highlights Multiple Chemical Sensitivity disorder. What is it?

    A controversial disease known as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) has become an unlikely point of inspiration for Raf Simons, the creative mind behind Calvin Klein.During his Tuesday New York Fashion Week show, Simons referenced the 1995 Todd Haynes film Safe, which stars Julianne Moore as Carol. The main character becomes a victim in her own home and the world around her. She is, in short, allergic to her own life, as she begins to develop mysterious symptoms — mystery bleeding, fatigue, and weight loss — all inexplicable to doctors. As Carol becomes increasingly curious about what is causing her pain, she suspects the environment and starts wearing long sleeves and a balaclava to stay protected.This week, Simons used Carol’s protective “fashion choice” as one of several inspirations for his runway collection — which similarly includes a series of balaclavas (hand-knit), thick white and metallic gloves, thigh-high boots, and protective clothing similar to a firefighter’s bunker gear. Jackets and coats are made in a bright safety orange, include reflective paneling along the sleeves and trimming. One look, featuring a white, green, and red striped sweater with blue sleeves, white trousers, and orange balaclava, bears a striking resemblance to the film’s own promotional imagery of Carol in her protective outfit.According to Vogue U.K., “Raf defined his work as being a mix of ‘safety and protection’ with a lot of cinematic historical references. They included Safe, the Julianne Moore film of 1995 about environmental illness in California and a new age clinic in Mexico…” While Raf’s show notes chose to explain his creative references with a collection of 50 words, they included “safe,” “environment,” “industrial,” and “uniform.”But what is MCS, anyway? The disease rose to prominence during the 1980s and was used to describe chemically intolerant patients — those who are unusually, severely sensitive to common chemicals, solvents, and pollutants that are typically not considered harmful to the general public. Examples include diesel exhaust, smoke, fragrances, cleaning products, and even new carpets and fresh ink.It differs from traditional allergies in its “symptoms and mechanisms,” according to Ann McCampbell, MD, who suffers from the illness and describes it on the website of the nonprofit Chemical Sensitivity Foundation. She explains how the reactions can be as severe as creating an “imbalance in a person’s nervous, immune, and endocrine (hormonal) systems” and forcing sufferers to pare down their diets to just a few select foods. It is also possible to develop difficulty in speech or cognitive ability. Exposure from cell phones, computers, fluorescent lights, and other wireless devices are believed to affect those with MCS, with the triggers and its reactions varying widely.The illness was controversial in the 1980s because of the inability of doctors and scientists to pin down a direct line of cause, with many patients simply “cast aside as mentally ill.” The illness was categorized as idiopathic, or a disease/condition that arises spontaneously, without a known cause. Patients’ symptoms varied so tremendously, as did their exposure to certain chemicals, that there was no consistency doctors could use to determine as a causation.But this changed after a breakout 2012 study by Claudia Miller, a physician and environmental health expert at the University of Texas School of Medicine. Miller was able to determine a cause and effect through a process she calls TILT, a toxicant-induced loss of tolerance. Today, TILT most commonly refers to MCS.Discover magazine describes Miller’s findings as a two-step process. “First, a susceptible individual gets sick after toxic exposure or exposures. But then, instead of recovering, the neurological and immune systems remain damaged, and the individual fails to get well. The sufferer begins to lose tolerance to a wide range of chemicals common in everyday life…,” it explains. “The person, now sick, becomes highly sensitive to chemical exposures. The individual is like a fireplace after the original fire has died down: The embers still glow a brilliant orange, ready to burst into flame with the slightest assistance.”It’s also important to note that MCS/TILT is chronic and its effects last as long as the “trigger” or chemical/toxicant is present, but the degree and time exposed can vary person to person, as can its effects.Haynes originally used MCS in Safe as a metaphor for the AIDS epidemic during the 1980s and the extremes people went to to protect themselves from the then relatively unknown disease.In Simons’s runway show, although MCS represented a crucial element, the designer had a much larger agenda address — and did it by covering the floors of the American Stock Exchange with faux snow — popcorn — that crunched as the models walked across it. His barnyard set featured reproduced artwork by Andy Warhol, and the ceilings were (once again) accompanied by soft, fibrous sculptures by Sterling Ruby.It was possibly, as some have conjectured, a dystopian version of America — one that is a continuation from his cinematic horror-themed spring 2018 collection. Is Simons’s collection a commentary on the current state of U.S. as an apocalyptic horror story of its own? Perhaps.

  • Kylie Jenner hides behind security blanket in Calvin Klein ad — and Twitter has theories why

    Calvin Klein launched a new global campaign on Monday morning featuring the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and a rare appearance from Kylie Jenner. Following the general vibe of most of the brand’s advertisements over the past few decades, the campaign photos have the family wearing nothing but their undergarments — with the exception of 20-year-old Jenner. Because of this modest pose people on Twitter have further evidence to believe that Kylie’s expecting her first child.
