Calvin Klein really has done it all. Jeans, underwear, fragrance, an advertising campaign featuring a certain Marky Mark (Wahlberg). Now, at 73 years old, one of the most iconic American designers is turning his hand to publishing, with what is sure to be a career-spanning book slated for release in 2017. "I'm not big on looking back, even though I have all the archives of every image we ever took," he revealed to WWD. "I have 50,000 images and 150 films… So I have lots of material to work with."

Calvin Klein and his eponymous label, represent all-American cool perhaps better than anyone in the world. A huge figure within the industry, his simple, clean designs are instantly recognizable -- fixtures within popular culture for over six decades. If one thing's certain, this most famous of underwear designers will struggle to keep things brief.
