CHAMPAGNE POPPING, HEEL KICKING, SPARKLE DUSTING, STUD WEARING, WHEN THE SUPERS WENT OUT FOR THE NIGHT, TRAFFIC STOPPED, AND THE MUSIC WENT FOR DAYS. FASHION HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME SINCE.
When the supermodel era kicked off in the mid 80s it changed the face of fashion entirely. The heyday of excessive parties led by Kate Moss and her model clique, took their iconic style from The Ritz to The Savoy, imprinting a certain way of life and how to dress, in the minds of everyone. For early Fall, designers are revisiting this excessive decadence and pouring it into fabulous accessories, with no complaints from anyone. Take Sonia Rykiel’s handbag and waist-belt, which are heavily reminiscent. Or have a look at Gucci’s studded version, which seems to never get old. All the ravenous decadence aside, the supers have staying power, who else can say that their style has spanned three decades?
