The 80s was a cocktail of contradictions. A time of effervescence in the arts, and crisis and changes in politics. While the Eastern bloc disintegrated, dictatorships were prolonged and AIDS ravaged entire countries.
Fashion became a recreational extravaganza through which designers expressed their individuality, abandoned the distinction between good and bad taste and sensed the imminence of a technological future. Inspired by film, arts, music, discos, sports and the streets.
