Calvin Klein and its underwear licensee, Warnaco Group Inc., are updating their Steel range of men’s underwear, in tandem with the launch of a pan-European male model search.
The latest Steel line consists of nine new colorways, each representing the flag of one of the countries participating in the model competition: England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Spain and Sweden. The Italian version, for example, is a green brief with a red and white waistband, and features a tiny tab of an Italian flag, sewn into a seam.
