It has been quite busy years for the cover stars of Dazed Lil Nas X and Hunter Schafer. Both rise to immense levels of fame, with Lil Nas X creating the biggest song of 2019 and Schafer looking on the successful Euphoria program, the two now performing together, starring in Calvin Klein’s SS20 campaign.
Titled “TREAT WITH HIM”, the images are intended to “Celebrate trust without complexes and self-esteem,” and also star SZA, Lay Zhang, Maluma and the royalty of Calvin Klein, Kendall Jenner, and Justin Bieber.
With the lens of Mario Sorrenti, with an attached video filmed by Bardia Zeinali, the campaign sees each star captured in a singularly surreal world personal to them. With Lil Nas X sitting at a boardroom table, SZA dancing around a white sports car and Kendall Jenner in a flower shop, for actor and model Hunter Schafer, however, the stage was a glowing bedroom equipped with pink silk sheets ( very good – brand of euphoria).
“I’d rather be dreaming … deal with it,” Schafer says in the video while wearing a black set of matching underwear, then jeans, a white T-shirt with the CK logo and a 90s style pink jacket. With other campaign looks that include some white denim overalls and baggy pajama pants, the brand’s characteristic underwear is also seen everywhere.
