After smooth seventies, easy in warm and natural hues, the 1980s operated a 180 degree turn. It’s gotta slap, it rumble, tilt the retina, have fun and dance until the end of the night. Money, frime, over-consumption, but also fun, outrageous freedom, prosperity and carelessness.

The 1980s marked the return of Parisian creators and the “Palace Generation”, named after this 9th concert hall Parisian district that attracts all VIPs from the eighties and the underground scene, between 1978 and 1983. The cuts are sharpened, architectural, innovative, embodied by Claude Montana (the biggest seller of the moment) or Thierry Mugler.

It is also the appearance of MTV (1981) that will revolutionize the sources of inspiration and impose a new aesthetic strongly inspired by charts and brands.

In the trend of the cult of body and appearance, fashion finds fertile ground here and designers become stars, just like the “Supermodels” they scroll, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell, Elle Macpherson,…

Gaultier, Mugler, Castelbajac explode while Paris sees the first Japanese “exotic” creators, led by Comme des Garçons or Kenzo. Fashion magazine prints accelerate as new challengers arrive; Depeche Mode, The Face or I-D. It’s “fashion fashion” will say Ardisson.

Who says eighties says neon. Everyone then had their k-way pop (yes yes, whoever closed in banana, here, she also comes back!) and did not hesitate to decline this cataractic shade in overlook and on accessories and make-up. Yeeeess neon yellow hoop earrings , hot green bags, pink shades and lips too much. It is also at this time that the Stabilo Boss Highlighter, created in 1971 in Germany, explodes.

The popistic colors would have been enough, but it’s very bad to know the Eighties. Cascade of extravagant patterns, stripes, polka dots, diamonds, gladly drowned in a cocktail of glitter and blinguesque rhinestones. Oh, lala!

THE 1970S

Bohemian dresses, eph paws, flowing blouses, psychedelic prints: this decade will mark the history of fashion


  • Jean-Paul Gaultier
  • Thierry Mugler
  • Jean-Charles de Castelbajac
  • Rei Kawakubo, Like Boys
  • Kenzo


The woman of the 80’s conquers her professional emancipation and becomes a working girl who (on) displays her power. Indispensable from her dressing room, the blazer jacket with oversized shoulders (which will make Thierry Mugler’s fame) like that of Mélanie Griffith in Working Girl, Angela Bower in Madame is served or… Michael Jackson in Thriller.


  • Working Girl
  • Flashdance
  • Dallas
  • Dynasty
  • Two Cops in Miami
  • Magnum
  • Madame is served
  • Arnold and Willy


So comfortable to get married on the dancefloor, leggins are the piece of the Eighties. Fluos, of course, they are worn with a body (which clips at the level of the pubis, ouch!) sweatshirt, sports sweatshirt or bat sleeves. The best waffled play the overbid with a rikiki cropped top. Goal of the maneuver: look like Alex Owens (Jennifer Beals) in Flashdance.

  • Madonna
  • Michael Jackson
  • Prince
  • Cindy Lauper
  • Lady Diana
  • Grace Jones
  • Boy George

The decade sees the fashion of “sportswear” popularized by the Beastie Boys, while Jane Fonda released his “Jane Fonda’s Workout” (1981), the first in a series of 23 exercise videos sportsmen. Aerobics is the yoga of the time. To mold their sports bodies, the girls of the 1980s swear only by lycra, this elastic synthetic fiber appeared in the 1970s on sportswear that democratized to all fashionable in the eighties. What makes its glory: 600% elongation strength before break that returns to shape after stretching and hyper fast drying. It is therefore combined with all sauces, mixing with cotton, denim and other materials that become “stretch” and “slim”, but above all super comfortable.

Fits the cuff of Mom’s bourgeois jewelry, place the plastic in XL format. Hoop earrings, bracelets also sink from the neon side of force. They are everywhere and sometimes even steal the star to the outfit. A glow that matches perfectly with the gingerbread complexion of eighties-girls who shamelessly toast in the sun, Anti-cancer preventive messages not yet passed through there…
