oh the 80's!
the colors, the cuts the over sized items and total camp nicknaks that
are just too damn adorable to ignore. It was a special period by far
( to my opinion the fashion nation was swept away on some extremely
strong hallucinogenic drug).
I find the color schemes, iconic symbols and cuts fascinating and I try to incorporate them in almost every item I do (I also have 2 main lines that feature this love, Dance On Glass
and Street Beat
So I decided to dedicate this blog to the wonderful 80's, not actual items from the period, but inspired by, adapted and made to bring back the spirit of the time with an edge to suit this
time. shall we call them 80's inspired street style items?
So lets go!
the prints I was talking about earlier, and the pink and black color scheme complements each other so well!! Going on with this color them, this pink and black polka dot and zipper print bustier
is just iresistable, so special and so out there you have to love it!
younger I had a sneaker print sweatshirt which I just loved and this top is so reminisent of that:)
Moving on to a slightly different cut, this big stripe V stitch slouch top
is just so cool and effortless, just put it on and walk out in pure style.
Still feeling the cold bite of winter? no worries Iv got some 80's
inspired duds to perk up your winter closet!
gloomy goth clubs of the 80's but with a death rock
one of my favorite items ever, they are so smoking hot and they glow under black light, making them the perfect clubbing shorts.
These tartan and zipper Capri pants
are super comfy, they are perfect for lounging with around the house or for going out.
