Inscription. One of the most popular designers of the 1980s, Perry Ellis brought a new look to American sportswear. His clothes were relaxed, unpretentious and fresh. “I donít make fashion,” Ellis insisted, “I make clothes.” By experimenting with proportion, juxtaposing the oversized and the shrunken, he made traditional ideas modern and witty. He also pioneered the revival of hand-knit sweaters.

His clothes were eclectic, often oversize, with a touch of whimsy that reflected the soft, gentle personality of their creator. Along with contemporaries like Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Anne Klein, he showed that not all innovative fashion had to come from Paris.
