The ’80s were all about exaggerated, stiff silhouettes. Ruffles were dramatic. This season the frills are softer, subdued and move with the body.
Big Shoulders at Balenciaga FW16 Runway
They’ve have made a huge resurgence this year thanks to Demna Gvasalia’s re-imagined Balenciaga. This time we see less severe though perhaps more exaggerated reincarnations.
Denim at Stella McCartney FW16 Runway
Eighties denim was all about excess. Think slashed denim jeans with lace, embellishments and acid wash with a denim top. The denim we see on the FW ’16 runways is more feminine and clean.
