Calvin Klein have recently launched Body Collection, a range of body-sculpting jeans. The range claims to lift and shape the posterior and slim the thighs to ensure a “perfectly contoured fit”.
Why it matters

Will designer fashion need to begin adding something beyond aesthetics? Will enhancement become a common selling point?
