In addition to the shoulder pads, vibrant colors and metallic, the 1980s was important to highlight certain changes, mainly coming from Asian backgrounds. In Japan, stylists (including Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo and others) were responsible for breaking rules, changing the aesthetic that until then was very “uptight.” The pieces millimetrically studied to be symmetrical gained changes – remarkable. What if a sleeve is a way on the right side and different from the left side? All this was in fact happening, in the necklines, dresses, skirts, blouses, trousers … All in an unpretentious and modern way. Today, fashion has completely consumed the trend, which explores modeling in various pieces – from girlie to minimalist. Here, Camila bet on a fitted stripe with the edges made up of ends – each one done in a way. As for my look, the blouse has a pointed edge on one side to break the monochromatic ensemble.
On the runways, designer labels explored ruffles and cuffs in a cool, elegant way. Self-Portrait brought the striped look with difference in thickness of lines, the blouse in a chalk-scratch and double strap format on one side and plain strap on the other. In Proenza Schouler, the dress plays with the division of top and skirt, being the parts united by a great ruffle.
Preen brought folds, which mix unusual overlays, in a minimalist-chic way. For Burberry, the mix of sheer and button down gained even more charm with the overlay of knitting, with sleeve on one side and neckline on the diagonal.
Lacoste explored the long sleeve structure on one side, while the other remained loose and open. With a difference of hem, The Row invested in the pointy and shorter hem mix for the tailoring look in its Fall 2018.
