That was then, this is now


In 1998, Kas turned down an offer by Calvin Klein to raise funds for the construction of the New Acropolis Museum in lieu of showcasing the fashion house’s collection at the 2nd century AD Herod Atticus theatre beneath the Acropolis.

Greece is now required to sell $55 billion in state assets. We think the entire problem could be solved in a couple of minutes. They have all these old, run-down buildings that need fixing, right? Partha-something, acropo-whatnot. For the solution, try humming the tune to “It’s a small polis after all.”
