Detail: Really beautiful printed silk vintage dress by Hanae Mori from the early 1980s. Wear it belted or not, depending on the style you're going for. We've styled it with an Avsh Alom Gur "Latex Belt" in black. Wonderfully ruched mutton sleeves. Poppers to cuff and button closure to rear. A stunning example of Japanese design for the European market. Hanae Mori was the first Japanese designer to conquer the European & American fashion market...
1980s: Designer labels defined the 80s, where a new breed of urban capitalist emerged. Dedicated to money, status and all the trappings of conspicuous consumption, Thatcher encouraged a "shop till you drop" mentality. Big hair and equally big shoulders drove the 'executive look' which had first found expression in the 70s to then mature into what became known as 'power dressing'. The style was masculine, strong and aggressive with feminizing short skirts. Glamour was reserved for the evenings where frills in the early 80s gave way to overtly body-conscious silhouettes that engaged skimpy dresses in lycra and leather with lots of toned flesh and teetering heels.
