The rumours proved to be true- Tuesday morning Calvin Klein announced that Raf Simons is joining the fashion house as Chief Creative Officer.
"The arrival of Raf Simons as chief creative officer signifies a momentous new chapter for Calvin Klein," CEO Steve Shiffman said via Instagram.

Raf's exceptional contributions have shaped and modernized fashion as we see it today and, under his direction, Calvin Klein will further solidify its position as a leading global lifestyle brand."
