CK by Calvin Klein Resort 1994 Collection
In 1992, Kate Moss signed with American designer Calvin Klein, after which she appeared in a series of advertisements for his brand. Klein played a major role in shaping Moss’ career. Here, she’s wearing her Calvin Klein minimalist suit from her Spring 1995 ready-to-wear collection.
Yves Saint Laurent Spring 1985 Haute Couture Collection

Versace Fall 1993 ready-to-wear collection
In 1974, Gianni Versace founded the first all-leather brand, Comply. Versace’s signature designs combine luxury and desire in an exhilarating blend that wows even fashion-weary audiences. During this time, his work captured the ‘rock chic’ trend of the time. This trend feels more relevant than ever now that the grunge aesthetic is at its peak.
Chanel Fall 1983 Haute Couture Collection
This work of art is about Chanel’s iconic suit. Few fashion items have stood the test of time quite like Chanel’s tweed two-piece. The famous set became not only a fashion icon, but also a representative of the emancipated woman, worn by many celebrities such as Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana, symbolizing sophistication and style. Heritage has been a perennial staple on her label.
Pauline Trigère Fall 1980 ready-to-wear collection
