Eighties illustration in motion; clothes for a bold woman.
“Graffiti by Brassai"; primal graffiti and Parisian street art, eighties painterly illustrations and street wear.
Stand out looks:
The knit wear looks, and the heavily patterned coat on Irene Hiemstra.
How they wore it:
Very layered. On some looks extra large grommets on jackets and tops revealed layers lying beneath.
A yellow jumper tied around the waist and knotted in the back worn over ragga style open knit skirts. A large clutch bag with a long tail of raffia streaming down the back. Woven jacquard trainers that read ‘love’ and ‘life’, beautiful crushed metal jewellery, which looked like the seats the attendees were sat on, and Ndebele-esque necklaces.
Most likely to:
Have potentially been worn on the cover of a Janet Jackson's ‘Control’.
Tennis Club de Paris
Large wooden box-like set that looked like the foundation of a building, and primary coloured metal stools.
Soul II Soul ‘Back to Life’, partially slowed down into a hypnotic lull.
Heavy brows that differentiated in size and shape per girl. Some were comical squiggles reminiscent of a woman in a Brassai photograph, while others were large block eyebrows. The hair was also different per girl, my favourite being the baby hair deconstructed finger wave.
