In just two short years of being tapped to be Calvin Klein‘s first chief creative officer, Raf Simons will be leaving the American fashion house. This would be eight months shy of his three-year agreement.
“Calvin Klein and Raf Simons announced that Raf Simons is leaving his position as chief creative officer. Both parties have amicably decided to part ways after Calvin Klein decided on a new brand direction which differs from Simons’s creative vision,” the company said in a statement.
As a result of the news, Calvin Klein will not be showing during New York Fashion Week in February. His successor has yet to be named.
