From Left to Right: Moschino, Isabel Marant, Rodarte, Saint Laurent, Haider Ackermann
Style Notes: Did you not believe us last season? We predicted that the ’80s trend was no passing one, and the proof was all over the S/S 17 catwalks. If Isabel Marant—our appointed queen of boho—has even stepped into the realm of high-shine fabrics and draped volume, you know this isn’t a decade dip to be ignored.
The essence of the new ’80s redux really lies in after-dark wares. You probably won’t find much of the mood filtering into daywear, but when it comes to going out, there’s much to play with, from silhouette-enhancing nipped waists fastened with giant belts to flirty hemlines balanced out by big shoulders. Crystal earrings and sky-high stilettos are key—and no one did them with more ferociousness than Saint Laurent’s new creative director, Anthony Vaccarello.
