The advertising campaign was shot by photographer, Anne Collier with Simons as creative director. Actresses Lupita Nyong'o (12 Years a Slave, Star Wars The Force Awakens, Black Panther) and Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, Lady Bird, Brooklyn). Each actress appears alongside women that have influenced and inspired them. (Nina Simone and Sissy Spacek for Ronan; Eartha Kitt and Katharine Hepburn for Nyong'o)

The company say:

Feminine. Sensual. Luminous. Celebrating the multifaceted nature of femininity, Calvin Klein WOMEN fuses strength and freshness with fragility and sensuality. The first fragrance ever created by Raf Simons, Calvin Klein WOMEN denotes not one, but many – a group of individuals, each with their own distinct voice. Drawing inspiration from the inherent freedom and empowered reality of modern women, this perfume celebrates the feminine spirit in all its forms.

Playing with contrasts, it captures the essence of the feminine spirit with woody, floral tones. A light pink hue composed of delicate orange flower petals layered with fresh eucalyptus acorns opens to reveal a rich heart of Alaskan cedarwood. Delicate, yet strong. Sensual, yet fresh. Calvin Klein WOMEN is a tribute to the contrasts within femininity, infinitely varied and deeply complex, like the personas of the women who inspired it.

Calvin Klein Women is available now at Harvey Nichols as 30ml, 50ml, and 100ml Eau de Parfum
