Sisters Laurann Claridge and Lizbeth King grew up in Connecticut and came of age in the 80s wearing their dad's button-downs. Although they left behind their uniform kilts and signet rings when they graduated from boarding school, they never outgrew their fascination with menswear. In 2008, following in their entrepreneurial grandparent's footsteps (who ran their own business in New York's garment district), the duo established Claridge + King, a clothing line for women inspired by menswear fabrics and tailoring.
Today Claridge (the blonde), C + K's design mind, calls herself a Texan by proxy, meanwhile King, the brilliant business mind (with an MBA to boot) is now based in Northern California.
