80s-Inspired Arcade Fashion

Frida Aasen Rocks Big Hair and Body Suits in Exit's 'Ride Me, Play Me'

— June 17, 2013 — Fashion
80s-inspired arcade fashion takes center stage in Exit Magazine's 'Ride Me, Play Me' editorial, featuring the big-haired Frida Aasen. Each ensemble showcased throughout the editorial is like something out of an 80s-era film. Aasen is shown wearing high-cut bodysuits, often neon in color, and high tops, embodying perfectly the vibrant athleticism that permeated the 1980s.

To enhance the 80s influence prevalent in 'Ride Me, Play Me,' photographer Aitken Jolly set the entire shoot in an 80s-style arcade. Aasen poses on an arcade motorcycle and a race car driving game. Paired with her brightly colored 80s aerobics ensembles, the ensemble becomes the perfect demonstration of modernized 80s fashion. While true 1980s fashion was almost clownish in its large patterns and loose-fitting designs, the ensembles in Exit's editorial are more understated and elegant. A simple black bodysuit, or a black and white checkered dress are much simpler than a blazer packed with shoulder pads.

Retro fashions are coming back in a big way, and this editorial proves that the 1980s have not been forgotten in this resurgence. It won't be long before the 80s are back in everything from runway shows to department stores.
