In this exclusive interview, Troye Sivan talks about his experience on set and his relationship with Calvin Klein. 


#1 You declared your truth in the latest #MYCALVINS campaign – what was the on-set experience like for you? Difficult? Nerve-wracking? Easy? Fun?

A mixture of all of the above. Vulnerability is never easy, but I’ve grown to really love the liberation on the other end of it.


#2 How does wearing Calvin Klein make you feel?

Sexy. I think back to the days where I was a pubescent closeted kid staring a second too long at the photos of the boys on the CK underwear boxes and I laugh at/enjoy feeling like a part of that now.


#3 How did you prepare yourself for the shoot?

I spent time planning with Jonas, who directed the video portion of the campaign. I really wanted to make something that felt like a tongue in cheek fantasy turns reality story.

#4 What is one thing your fans do not know about you?

I feel socially proficient but would much rather fade into the background of most social settings. I like listening.


#5 Describe your personal style.

It's always changing. I’d say the through line is respecting things that are classic - wayfarers, chucks, CK undies, a good pair of blue jeans - while also completely giving myself the room and right to experiment and play. 


#6 Is there anyone else in the cast you are a big fan of or have a crush on?

I really love what Chika does and have for a long time. As for crushes, everyone’s so hot in this campaign.
