Her resume includes influential stints at prestigious fashion houses such as Jil Sander, Céline, Moncler, and The Row. Leoni’s deep industry knowledge and innovative design philosophy are set to infuse Calvin Klein with a fresh yet familiar aesthetic, blending her unique style with the brand's iconic minimalism.

    Leoni’s collaboration with Calvin Klein Global Brand President Eva Serrano promises to be a transformative partnership. Together, they aim to channel the inspiration from the Collection into the broader mainline portfolio, ensuring that Calvin Klein’s distinctive style continues to resonate on the red carpet and beyond.

    “We are proud to name Veronica as Creative Director of Collection, the pinnacle expression of the Calvin Klein brand,” said Serrano. “It was clear from our first conversations that Veronica’s life’s work had been preparing her for this moment and the opportunity to define a new era for Calvin Klein. I am confident that her purposeful approach to design and work ethic, combined with our shared values, will further enrich our iconic brand and result in a collection that resonates with our consumers around the world.”

    The debut of the new collection is scheduled for Autumn 2025, which will showcase a comprehensive range of men’s and women’s apparel, underwear, and accessories.
