I've seen a lot of 80's influence lately.
Please, some mod add "F/W 09.10" to the thread name.

What is up with the 80's! Weren't they famous for irresponsability and overrated opulance? wrong wrong timing.
Why do people insist in bringing the 80's back like its such a new concept. Instead of imitation/renovation/ call it whatever why don't they come up with something new?
I can testify that people have been trying to bring back the 80's since at least 2002.
As for Blumarine, although I don't whole heartedly detest it, who was their inspiration this season? Lisa Frank?
I'm tired of the 80's this is the 00's make it count.
pucci looks so different, loved it, very inovating for the brand, very strong.
loved marc jacobs pink clutch.
miss sixty first posted look works! it's beautiful but simple: loved it, and i'm not a fan of the brand.

I'll just.. run and hide! Damn you recession, this wasn't what you were supposed to do!
i hope fashion makes progresses and not the other way around.
some items i do like a lot, but .....hhmmm not the whole.
thank u for pics.
80s references have been used this decade more than any post 2002 , im personally had it with 80s style fashion , living through them once is good enough .
i'm going to kind of echo what's been said but i like certain things from these collections/pictures, and i love all the colour that the 80s style brings! now all we need is a 70s or 60s comeback and i'm happy
I am not feeling the 80's trend. Some of the looks are fashionable and, depending on how you wear it, can look fierce. But I think most of us can agree that most people want to forget how they looked in the 80's.
I think its important to remember to pair 80's homage pieces with something that is more modern looking. For example, if you are going to wear a bulky top; opt for a skinny pant or jean to give your ensemble cleaner line. Going full on 80's from head to toe can look too trendy and overdone.
maybe i'm in the minority but i like 80s influence (not that i think a lot of current designers are doing it well). imo the 80s was the most artistic and revolutionary decade for fashion if you look at designers like rei kawakubo, yohji yamamoto, gaultier, mugler, westwood, galliano, gianfranco ferre, etc. a lot of 80s was certainly horrendous, but the best 80s fashion was trailblazing, sculptural, and conceptual. i think it's good if current designers want to reference the 80s, just as long as they look at what was good about 80s fashion.
also fashion goes in cycles-the 80s were inspired by the mod 60s, the 90s by the 70s, and now the 00s by the 80s. probably by the turn of the decade, we will start seeing fewer colors and big shoulders, more relaxed silhouettes and softer palettes.
^ I agree with you. Maybe because I never experienced 80s fashions first hand, they really don't offend me like they seem to offend most people, and looking back at the high fashion 80s stuff, the Montana/Mugler/Alaia and the like, I actually think it's quite chic.
Besides, it makes complete sense that the 80s is currently the obsession in fashion. The clothes were very strong, very assertive but also very feminine. So now that the world is falling apart around us, designers want to project that same kind of vibe, some just translate it for today a lot better than others do.
