Furore over Calvin Klein ad

People are outraged by a new Calvin Klein underwear advertisement featuring an "up-skirt" photo of a model. In the "I flash in #mycalvins" advertisement, model Klara Kristin, 23, wears a skirt and looks down at the floor-level camera.

"Calvin Klein is marketing to perverts," the New York Post said. The National Center On Sexual Exploitation launched a petition calling on the fashion house to "stop normalising and glamorising sexual harassment".
