Fashion Rule 2: “Fashion always comes back around”

shoulderpads

‘What goes around comes around and nowhere is that as obvious as in fashion where every couple of years ideas are regurgitated and presented as new.’

“Fashion is about today. You can take an idea from the past, but if you do it the way it was, no one wants it.” – Karl Lagerfeld

“I think David Bowie said, ‘Shoulder pads are the bell-bottoms of the ‘80s.’ And just as bell-bottoms reared their head again in fashion, so will shoulder pads.” – Marc Jacobs

And yes, in 2001, 2007 and 2009 shoulder pads were back… Shoulder pads were a hot fashion item in the eighties. You could spot women almost looking like rugby players. Just take a look at Joan Collins, the star from the glamour soap opera Dynasty. But the pads had a well-considered strategy to achieve a ‘power’look and  a small waste. And it worked. For people with sloping shoulders, pads are definitely a wonderful thing. But try not to exaggerate like Joan Collins did….

Fashion Rule 2: “Fashion always comes back around”

Na verloop van tijd komt mode altijd terug, weliswaar in een gepimpte versie.

 “Fashion is about today. You can take an idea from the past, but if you do it the way it was, no one wants it.” – Karl Lagerfeld

“I think David Bowie said, ‘Shoulder pads are the bell-bottoms of the ‘80s.’ And just as bell-bottoms reared their head again in fashion, so will shoulder pads.” – Marc Jacobs

En effectief, in 2001, 2007 en 2009 werden de epauletten terug gespot… In de eighties waren epauletten hot fashion.  Het scheelde niet veel of men zag eruit als een rugbyspeler. Kijk maar naar Joan Collins, de ster uit de glamour soapserie Dynasty. Toch zat er een weldoordachte strategie achter deze fashion trend, nl. het creëren van een ‘power’ look en een smalle taille.  En het werkte. Ook voor mensen met ietwat afhangende schouders is dit een wondermiddel. Toch best niet overdrijven zoals Joan Collins….
