Steve Shiffman, chief executive officer of Calvin Klein, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp., has unveiled a series of strategic changes to the company in response to the rapidly evolving fashion and retail landscape. These initiatives will enable to run a more modern, dynamic and effective business, as well as allow to reinvest in the brand.

"Calvin Klein has long been driven by its ability to balance art and commerce in a culturally relevant way – one that has often defied the status quo. Our industry is witnessing a historic transformation in consumer behavior which presents a significant growth opportunity as we look to grow the brand to $12 billion in global retail sales over the next few years. Now more than ever, we must double down on meeting consumer demands by creating culturally relevant products and experiences that engage communities by pushing fashion and culture forward," said Shiffman.

The brand’s strategy includes three key initiatives namely relaunching the brand, adoption of a digital approach and streamlining of its North America division.

The brand is relaunching the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC business under a new name, design approach and creative direction. The new business will focus on connecting directly to all of the other Calvin Klein brands and amplifying each category with unique products and aspirational experiences. The relaunched business will be designed to evolve the traditional luxury fashion model by connecting with a diverse range of communities, offering an unexpected mix of influences and moving at an accelerated pace. As a result of Calvin Klein, Inc.’s ongoing assessment of its omnichannel strategy, the 654 Madison Avenue store will be closing in spring 2019. The company is evaluating options for future retail locations, and will also be unveiling new consumer experiences both online and offline.

The Calvin Klein, Inc. leadership team has adopted a digital-first approach and introduced a newly formed 'Consumer Marketing Organization (CMO) The CMO is evolving to accommodate the rapidly changing demands of today’s consumers, with highly specialized teams focused on new areas including Consumer Engagement and Shopper Experience.

The business will be streamlining its North America division to become a more effective organisation, including consolidation of operations for the men’s Calvin Klein Sportswear and Calvin Klein Jeans business as a means of further strengthening the brand’s positioning. The Calvin Klein retail and ecommerce teams will be integrated to create an omni-channel approach mirroring how consumers browse, shop and purchase today. (RR)
