AN ’80s REVIVAL
For an era so often referred to as bad taste, the 1980s still
manage to assert heavy influence on present-day fashion. Only
recently the spotlight has been turned back on Princess Diana
with an exhibition, Her Fashion Story, on show at Kensington
Palace until February 2018. It seems we just can’t get enough of
shoulder pads, 10-denier tights and sexy off-the-shoulder looks.
FEELING BLUE IN PARIS
Some are interpreting the mania for blue at Paris Fashion Week as a statement of “the blues” about the perceived rise of nationalism across Europe and America. While its exact symbolism is up for debate, one thing is certain: blue is the colour of the season. A host of designers all used the symbolically-charged hue in their autumn-winter collections. Including; Celine, Dior,Issey
Miyake, and Elie Saab.
RUMOUR HAS IT
The whispers are true, H&M will soon be stationed within our city limits. The super chain, with more than 4100 stores in 64
countries, is set to open New Zealand’s second store in the $140-million retail and office redevelopment, The Crossing, opposite
Ballantynes. We are looking forward to having H&M’s selection of ‘conscious-sustainable’ styles right on our doorstep.
