Inscription. The work of Anne Klein epitomized the ease and comfort associated with Post War American sportswear. She was instrumental in the development and popularization of coordinated separates for both day and evening. These separates, such as body suits and zippered skirts, have become classic staples of the modern wardrobe. Klein’s company was also the training ground for others who would become leading designers.
