Calvin Klein Fragrances Announces the Return of Christy Turlington Burns and Edward Burns as the Faces of ETERNITY Calvin Klein
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Calvin Klein, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], and Calvin Klein Fragrances, a division of Coty Inc. [NYSE: COTY], today revealed the worldwide global advertising campaign for ETERNITY Calvin Klein with the return of maternal health activist and model Christy Turlington Burns, alongside her husband, director, writer, producer and actor Edward Burns, as the faces of the ETERNITY campaign.
ETERNITY Calvin Klein advertising has artfully and unforgettably captured the promise of romance, intimacy, and commitment. Together, Turlington Burns who starred in the first ETERNITY advertising campaign when it debuted in 1988, and Burns who has appeared next to his wife in the 2014 and 2016 campaigns, bring to life the essence of the ETERNITY love story with their timeless relationship.
Today, the ETERNITY story continues with the iconic couple in a new television and print campaign that portrays an enduring love rooted in sensuality, authenticity, spontaneity, and supports the launch of the new ETERNITY Cologne for him and ETERNITY Eau Fresh for her Calvin Klein.
“After shooting the first ETERNITY Calvin Klein campaign ever over 30 years ago, it’s a pleasure to be working with Calvin Klein again and to continue to be a part of the history of such an iconic fragrance,” said Turlington Burns + Burns jointly. “We are honored to be part of this new campaign celebrating our relationship with ETERNITY Calvin Klein.”
The television campaign is captured by filmmaker and photographer Matt Lambert and is a combination of traditional black and white in addition to color shots. This juxtaposition conveys their committed past with the strength of their present relationship. The campaign, a compilation of joyful moments by the ocean, is an homage to their love story and is set to a reimagined cover of the iconic love song ‘Unchained Melody’ by Lykke Li.
Lachlan Bailey photographed the iconic couple in a classic black and white still campaign visual on the beach. Turlington Burns’ hair is effortlessly being swept back by the ocean breeze while Burns adoringly pulls her toward him. The image is just one of many memories in time for the couple, a stolen moment in their endless love story.
“We are thrilled to welcome back such an iconic couple to celebrate the next chapter of ETERNITY Calvin Klein which continues its legacy as one of the most beloved fragrances for both men and women,” said Simona Cattaneo, President of Luxury Brands at Coty. “With this new campaign ETERNITY continues to inspire timeless love; its romantic values are undimmed by the passing of time and still resonate with consumers today.”
In addition to supporting ETERNITY Calvin Klein Signature, the campaign also supports the new line extension ETERNITY Cologne for him and ETERNITY Eau Fresh for her Calvin Klein through the still campaign visual also shot by Bailey. The hero image is an injection of happiness and bursts of freshness; Turlington Burns and Burns are captured playfully frolicking in the ocean, holding each other closely as the waves splash around them.
Evoking the free-spirited nature of the ocean and the joy of strolling through a beautiful sensual garden, the line extension inspires spontaneity while celebrating the spirit of eternal love. The enduring legacy of the ETERNITY Calvin Klein Signature is playfully reimagined for modern lovers with fresh green ingredients in ETERNITY Cologne for him Calvin Klein by perfumers Julie Massé, Ralf Schwieger and Véronique Nyberg of Mane and romantic watery florals in ETERNITY Eau Fresh for her Calvin Klein by perfumers Olivier Gillotin and Sonia Constant of Givaudan.
