Get into gear with Calvin Klein's new performance sportswear and iconic underwear collection.

Photographed by Boo George, we had the pleasure of retouching this eye-wateringly cool #mycalvins campaign.

Starring models Mitchell Slaggert and Maud Welzen, these striking shots were taken at the infamous Gleason's Boxing Gym in Brooklyn, New York. 

Gleason's has a long and fascinating history, in both boxing and Hollywood.

Some of the greatest boxers of all time have trained at Gleason's, including Jake LaMotta, Roberto Duran, Muhammed Ali and Mike Tyson, and it proudly holds the title for being the oldest and busiest active boxing gym in the world.

And it has now been immortalised in countless Hollywood films, documentaries and photoshoots.

Movies include Million Dollar Baby, Raging Bull, The 10 Count, Heart, Rage of Angels; and actors Hilary Swank, Robert de Niro & Wesley Snipes even trained at the gym in preparation for their film roles.
