From silhouettes with broad shoulders to fanny packs and English tweed jackets, the Gucci Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection embraces all aspects of 80s fashion.
Although the bold looks of the 80s are both equally loved and hated by the world of fashion, the Italian luxury brand's collection invites people to rethink what they know about beauty from this decade. The collection features references to Disney and Sega, as well as sweaters woven with 8-bit blocks of text. Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele expressed how important it felt to "resist the illusion of something new at any cost."
A number of 80s-inspired TV shows and movies have permeated pop culture, inspiring both nostalgia and fascination with the last few years before the Internet.
