Lil Nas X and Justin Bieber have gone shirtless for a seductive new Calvin Klein campaign.

The music stars appear as part of a showcase for the brand’s Spring 2020 collection, which also features model Kendall Jenner, Euphoria’s Hunter Schafer, and musicians Maluma, SZA, and Lay Zhang.

The DEAL WITH IT campaign, shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti, is described by the brand as a celebration of “unapologetic confidence and self-love”, and each of the famous faces were chosen for “their willingness to bare themselves to the world.”

To coincide with the launch of the star-studded ads, a video directed by filmmaker Bardia Zeinali was released. It features the entire cast dancing and posing in front of the camera while wearing head-to-toe Calvin Klein.

“An ode to self-expression, each set captures the talent in their own exaggerated world, with stripped-back and raw elements that are inherent to the brand and drive home the DEAL WITH IT narrative,” representatives for the brand said in a statement.

Lil Nas X posted the campaign video on Instagram, and joked that he had no idea what was going on in the clip.

“bro idk (I don’t know) what the hell is going on… @CalvinKlein. Deal With It. #MYCALVINS,” he wrote.

Kendall also shared the video with her 123 million followers on Instagram, and wrote: “i love my @calvinklein. deal with it. #MYCALVINS.”

According to the American fashion house, DEAL WITH IT is an expansion of last year’s hugely successful #MYCALVINS campaign, which starred Yummy hitmaker Justin, model Kendall, Billie Eilish, and Shawn Mendes.

Kim Jones has guest-edited Harper’s Bazaar’s first men’s magazine in more than 50 years.

The special print supplement is dedicated solely to men’s style and inspired by the original Men’s Bazaar publication which was released in the 1960s.

Jones, artistic director of Dior Homme, took to Instagram to reveal his new gig and share the five special covers of the magazine, which feature himself and musicians Maluma, Travis Scott, J Balvin, and Orville Peck wearing pieces from the French fashion house.

“I’m happy to announce the first @harpersbazaarus men’s issue guest edited by Me!” he wrote alongside the snaps.

In his editorial for the magazine, the 40-year-old designer explained that he was inspired to create the diverse and inclusive covers for the men’s issue by late fashion illustrator and photographer Antonio Lopez.

“He’s an absolute hero of mine; I would have loved to have met him,” Jones wrote. “I was thinking about his New York, about the mix and diversity of the people Antonio photographed and drew in the 1970s and Eighties – the vibrancy and energy, the freedom – and I wanted to capture some of that in these images and reflect it through fashion for now.”

He went on to reveal that he picked Latinx musicians Maluma and Balvin because they “look like Antonio boys” and noted that if the late photographer were alive today, he would be a huge fan of rapper Scott.

“As for Orville Peck, I love both his image and the messages behind his music,” he added.

A spokesperson for Harper’s Bazaar owners Hearst said the men’s supplement will most likely be a quarterly edition, with different guest editors.
