At Milan fashion week, Donatella Versace showed a Fall 2009 collection that brought back the days of disco. The pieces that thrust as back to the best parties of the 80s included tops with structured shoulder pads, black sequined trenches, a patterned blue fur coat and black skinny jeans. As the show went on, the shimmery disc-style curtains changed color in the background as the lanky models made their way down the catwalk.

There was lots of sparkle, but as pointed out, there was "No bling, no gold, no logos in sight."

A slight mermaid influence was also seen in the collection, as Trend Hunter's Elsa previously pointed out. Stats for 80s Disco Fashion Trending: Older & Buzzing
