Below are some excerpts from the cast, you can read the full editorial piece by Calvin Klein here.

Mahershala Ali on the cast:

Alex Hibbert on his love of clothes:

Ashton Sanders on Raf Simons:
I just met Raf and I almost fainted, man, really. I’ve been a fan of his since I was in the 10th grade. He just looked me up and down, and then he nodded, like, ‘I like your look.’ I almost passed out.

Trevante Rhodes on his newfound stardom:
