Though he was thought to be beloved by industry insiders, and his runway shows attracted celebrity fans like Julianne Moore and Lupita Nyong’o, “both parties have amicably decided to part ways after Calvin Klein Inc. decided on a new brand direction which differs from Simons’s creative vision,” the company said in a statement.
A successor has not been named.
