How to Get the 80s
Also this year the 80’s glam has reached and conquered runways and street-wear as well, echoing a lifestyle that obviously will never get out-of-style. Nowadays we can easily find many references of the 80’s culture, mostly through iconic pieces and accessories that made history for a generation. As a tribute to those Eighties clothes that became statements for decades and main carachters of today, we recommend this S/S 18 season’s favourites to help letting out the 80’s soul laying inside of you!
1 A huge inspiration came from a true fashion icon of and for the Eighties: Madonna, who, with her eccentric look mixed up&by her trasgressive behaviours and an overall talent of transforming herself, has contaminated and influenced the style Guide for plenty of generations.
Biker jacket Saint Laurent, shorts J Brand, twisted sandals Francesco Russo.
2 Sportswear was not missing! Fluo leggins with extravagant prints on them, gym bodies and Hair bands finished by legwarmers were really a big deal; more than that, a revolution. Backpack Moncler, sneakers Ash, tracksuit Givenchy.
3 As we all know the Eighties were many things, included The Girl Boss Years: a woman that refers herself to a sober and refined sensuality, neither cheeky nor slammed. One of the most representative designer of this new kind of femininity was Giorgio Armani, whose iconic tailleurs and best-known unstructured jacket fitted perfectly the status of this new woman. The imperative quote was: dress for success! Jacket Gucci, free rockstud sandals Valentino, Kan I mini shoulder bag Fendi.
4 Oversize and extra large shoulders cuts today are still an easy trend for fashion lovers, meant to express a street-style with a retrò taste, serious and ironic at the same time. Tulle Blazer Y/Project, cat-eyes sunglasses Alberta Ferretti.
5 It takes just three words to properly describe that decade: Excess, Eccentricity, Exaggeration all well expressed by strong tones, shapes and geometric volumes. Fluo colours, fantasy prints and sequins were key-elements. Sequins jacket and sequins dress Attico, chain belt Givenchy.
