NEW YORK (AP) — The fashion photographer behind Calvin Klein's racy new ad campaign isn't bothered by the social media firestorm it has sparked. London-based photographer Harley Weir tells The Associated Press she's "really happy" with the response, regardless of the overwhelming amount of backlash.
The brand has posted several of Weir's photos on Instagram and Twitter this week, including on starring model Kendall Jenner, which has been deemed overtly sexual with its "I eat in #mycalvins" tagline. The most-talked-about shot, however, is an upskirt photo of model Klara Kristin with the tagline, "I flash in #mycalvins." While many commenters on social media say they're offended by the campaign, others say it's simply risqué. When asked about her thoughts on the reaction, Weir said, "I love it."
Calvin Klein hasn't responded to requests for comment.
