On our minds: bye 70s, hello 80s!

There are things we like about the 80s comeback visible in the fall/winter 2015 collections. And things we can do without.

Judging from the major fashion week shows to date it is evident that the new feminist wave is to be continued for AW15 and chameleonised into an 80s context. In both New York and London we have seen the comeback of snotty girl power punk with a political flair, the most evident (and perhaps also most appealing) interpretation coming from Sibling with their androgynous power pinks. One of the most interesting acts was Marc by Marc Jacobs who nodded towards the online seducing of young women into radical political terrorist movements in his punk breathing collection of Westwood-esque pieces reading “Suffragette”, “Solidarity”, and “Unite”. J.W. Anderson’s collection referred to post-Soviet female consumerism patterns on the rise, highlighting the power of style and consumption for self-expression purposes and indirectly the appearance of fast fashion as we know it. We love the references to the overall optimism of the 80s along with female empowerment but hope to pass over the mindless consumption charactetistic for the decade in silence.
