Despite being severely over weight, Ashley is thought to be delighted with the opportunity of working with such an iconic brand.
He said: “I have always styled myself as a lager swilling rubenesque dynamo. And, it seems that Calvin Klein concur and are warm for my form.”
The Sports Direct supremo made his fortune buying and selling outdoor clothing designed for the non-morbidly obese.
In contrast, New York based Calvin Klein created an empire by simply putting everyday underwear on drug ravaged models.
Of course, the fashion designer’s pursuit of Ashley is confusing to say the least. But, a Calvin Klein spokesperson confirmed that the company are looking to go in another direction.
“We can confirm that Calvin Klein has suffered a major psychotic episode and has transferred power of attorney to his home help Magda.”
This brief, yet enlightening statement, clearly shows that Mike Ashley will be the new face of 21st Century Calvin Klein.
Indeed, this daring and potentially ground-breaking move is yet another example of why the clothing company have been at the heart of innovation for more than 30-years.
