COUNTRIES OF DISTRIBUTION
The CALVIN KLEIN brands — CALVIN KLEIN 205 W39 NYC, CK Calvin Klein, CALVIN KLEIN, Calvin Klein Jeans and Calvin Klein Underwear — provide us with the opportunity to market products both domestically and internationally at various price points, through multiple distribution channels and to different consumer groups. The CALVIN KLEIN brands are also licensed for a range of products, including fragrance, women's apparel, footwear, eyewear, watches and jewelry in various regions. Global retail sales of products sold under the Calvin Klein brands were approximately $8.4 billion in 2016.
A tiered-brand strategy was established for CALVIN KLEIN to provide a focused, consistent approach to global brand growth and development. Each of the CALVIN KLEIN brands occupies a distinct marketing identity and position that preserves the brand's prestige and image.
"We see great long-term global opportunities to drive the Calvin Klein business as we leverage our recent strategic investments and execute on our key initiatives."
