K & K


Calvin Klein and Donna Karan, who best epitomize the expansive confidence associated with the most recent incarnation of the New York fashion scene, were both born and trained in the environs of the city. They garnered their experience of the trad in the tough environment of Seventh Avenue and rose to international prominence on the back of the recasting of corporate triumphalism and free-trade machismo in the early eighties. Their brand of body-conscious, sartorial fitness, which offered the promise of luxury in an accessible form, provided the ideal wardrobe for the confident classless, and authoritativ yuppie stereotypes who signified material and emotional success in countless aspirational advertising campaigns, television soap operas, and Hollywood blockbusters to the end of the century.
