Back to the 80s
The 80s was a cocktail of contradictions. A time of
effervescence in the arts, and crisis and changes in politics. While
the Eastern bloc disintegrated, dictatorships were prolonged and AIDS
ravaged entire countries.
Fashion became a recreational extravaganza through which designers
expressed their individuality, abandoned the distinction between good
and bad taste and sensed the imminence of a technological future.
Inspired by film, arts, music, discos, sports and the streets.
