On the Street…’80s Redux, London



The 80′s are back!


For me they never left but seeing this young lady in London brought back a flood of great memories.

    Love the monochromatic ensemble. Very ’80s!

    Points from me, just because of the sheer drama of the ensemble. This look requires total confidence in ones self. Powerful, mistress of the universe vibe. I’d invite her for tea, but she’d probably smile and walk away. Have a good day , Madam.

    This looks so ill fitting it makes me want to send her a mirror.

    Yikes – ill-fitting coat, pants uneven – I don’t see what is to like here

    the outfit looks interesting. it also looks like it cost her 10 bucks, which is even better! :)

    First , ironing is a thing.
    Second I am not usually a fan of a decade revival having been there done it. But I am always amazed there is not more acknowledgment of how stylish young street wear is directly proportional to what is available in the previously worn clothes market.
    Third , great look overall , her simple hair makes it for me.
    Forth, ironing is a thing .

    No way, no how, not ever! One BIG blunder.

    Makes her look a little bit as if she suffers Proteus syndrome.

    The light colour palette is undone this heavy look. The baggie sleeves, waist, pants and boots just drag her down.

    Are the summer fabrics already back this time of season?

    The top of this look isn’t too bad… The bottom half is awful! No sense of proportion: looks like she just threw on someone else’s clothes in a hurry. Plus, that clutch she has does nothing to salvage her look…

    I second some of the comments above and need to add that even the shoes look out of proportion and uncomfortable to walk in.

    The jacket-just OMG-the jacket.
    The ’80′s? Yes, please

    idont see any eighties ,maybe in the collar form and jacket a bit miami vice gone bio , but in all more a sculptural or joseph beuys approach to the concept.. the boots also. altogether it feels like the lady needs help or the designer of this jonathan demme big suit re- concept.
