Since it’s release, Moonlight is a film that has struck a chord with the audience. Not only did it win an Academy Award for Best Picture, it is a brilliant example of quality filmmaking. It beautifully portrays the manner in which a young black boy the deals with issues of sexuality and identity, a rarely touched upon topic.
Popular brand Calvin Klein has made most of this and shot their Spring 17 underwear campaign with the cast of Moonlight. The lead male actors Mahershala Ali, Alex Hibbert, Trevante Rhodes and Ashton Sanders are part of the campaign. The fashion brand has often been under the scanner for its especially for its lingerie collection. However, this time the brand definitely deserves appreciation for making the right statement with its latest campaign, which caters not just to the black population but has a global appeal.

Resonant: “Even after the performance is over, I realize that you still have to service it. I’ll be in a coffee shop and someone will come up to me and just open a vein…telling me how this struck a nerve for them, what their experience was." ⠀ —@MahershalaAli, the Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor, wearing the 100% Cotton Crew Neck T-Shirt and Cotton Stretch Trunk with Slim Cut Jeans. ⠀ The Spring ’17 Men’s Calvin Klein Underwear Campaign, photographed by Willy Vanderperre.

The art of the cool: “I just met Raf and I almost fainted, man. Really. I’ve been a fan of his since I was in the 10th grade. He just looked me up and down, then he nodded, like, ‘I like your look.’ I almost passed out.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ —Fashion fan @ashtondsanders, here in the Cotton Stretch Boxer Brief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Spring ’17 Men’s Calvin Klein Underwear campaign, photographed by Willy Vanderperre.
Rhodes looks like the campaign was tailor-made for him.
Young Hibbert is a talented actor in the making.
