Her road to fashion fame admittedly had a bumpy start in the 1980s with blue eyeshadow, acid washed jeans and headbands (Stars! They’re just like us!), but by the 1990s she was donning Marlene Dietrich pantsuits and fashion forward gowns. A provocative strappy cutout Versace dress in 1993 was a year before Elizabeth Hurley’s notorious safety pin version.

This paper aims at achieving a greater understanding of how contracts operate in practice through a review of recent empirical literature on inter firm contract design. Our focus on the structure of contractual agreements differentiates this review from others that dedicated ample coverage also to the antecedents of the decision to contract and of the choice of contracting versus integration. Our framework develops Stinchcombe’s (1985) hypothesis that contracts are an organizational phenomenon.
