Despite only just starting his tenure at Calvin Klein, Raf Simons is making no mistakes. 

The creative director has just rolled out his latest campaign for CK Underwear and it could not be more on point.

Boasting the stars of yesterday's Oscar award-winning Moonlight, the campaign features Best Supporting actor Mahershala Ali, alongside co-stars Alex Hibbert, Trevante Rhodes and Ashton Sanders. 

Shot by Willy Vanderperre, the images feel less like an underwear campaign and more like an inspired series of moving portraits.

“It’s an acknowledgement of remarkable actors who are revealing something important of being a man today in what they do,” said Simons. 

Moonlight follows the life of Chiron, a young black man, and his coming-of-age story growing up in Miami.
