You know the eighties are back good and proper when…
…Maria Cornejo is the toast of NYFW and Pam Hogg is the hot ticket for LFW. “What next,” spluttered my PR pal over tea and finger sandwiches in Liberty yesterday afternoon, “the return of Bodymap?” Um, actually yes. Bodymap’s Stevie Stewart has cooked up a collection with Pippa Brooks (AKA Madame) called Goldstein Attire. Not quite the graphic knits and jerseys of back-in-the-day Bodymap (above) but the spirit of the eighties is certainly there. Watch this space.
…Harem pants, leggings and jumpsuits are selling like hot cupcakes not only in American Apparel but M&S and Next.
…Marc Jacobs’ AW09 collection ‘melded together the power-dressed party posse in their brocade, power shoulders and puffball skirts with the Blitz kids in their laquered hair, brothel creepers and fishnet,’ according to Grazia Daily.
…Minder has been reimagined for the noughties complete with Glaswegian band Attic Lights’ re-recording of ’I Could Be So Good For You’. (Oh dear.)
…River Island unveiled its We Love The Eighties collection last week which is unleashed on the public in March.
All we need now is for Sara Stockbridge to rematerialise. Oh, here she is!

Ah, the ’80s were fun. People knew how to party.

UGH! And don’t forget the acid-wash denim!

The 80’s in definitely back, were listening to music from back in the day, at the moment journey is playing. But I can’t help but bop around slightly when heart comes on.

Brilliant! I was too young the first time round to fully appreciate shoulder pads and frosted lipstick. I intend on fully embracing them both this time via Topshop Unique!
