Fashion and Style combined with Polyvore sets
As someone who was born in the early 1980s, three trends that stuck out the most for me were the designer jeans craze, Madonna wannabes (basically girls who would dress up as if they were Madonna), and the preppy look (turned up collars, anyone?). As far as the preppy trend went, Lacoste was amongst one of the popular labels that defined preppy. Fast forward almost 2-3 decades and Lacoste has become a phoenix that rose from the ashes. Ever since 2000, Lacoste has regained the status it held in the early 1980s. I, for one, couldn’t be happier that I get to see and remember the rebirth of Lacoste.
With a color palette of white, gray, black, green, orange, red, blue, dark teal, eggplant, royal blue, and cream, and a 3-D cubist style entry/exit onto the runway, the entire collection was reminiscent of mod space age new romantic meets new wave 1980s power suit. With that said, mutton sleeves/or puff sleeves were present in some looks, while front slits were found in some skirts and dresses. Models strutted out wearing either gray boots or sneakers, some wore see through coats and a few pieces had a bateau/boat neckline. There was one look that featured a jumpsuit to tie it all up. Overall, I loved this look, so I am looking forward to the spring collection.
