Calvin Klein: Trends Are Meaningless

The Cut caught up with Calvin Klein over the weekend and the designer had some harsh--but perhaps true--words for any aspiring fashionistas. The harbinger of waifs and minimalism said he is no longer involved in the business of fashion, and as such, "I'm so happy to not pay attention to trends because they are meaningless anyway. They are over fast. As soon as you see them, as soon as you see people wearing them, they are over."

Klein also seems to be so over his company, explaining that he has nothing to do with the label's current advertising, like, say, the underwear ads starring Zoe Saldana.
