We Wish These Past F/W Trends Make A Resurgence

Fashion inspiration from yesteryears

Fall/Winter 2017 designs are now out in the market. And while we love being updated with the latest fashion trends, we still get a kick at looking back at previous designs and predicting which ones are going to make an epic comeback. 

For today's #ThrowbackThursday, we're looking at past Fall/Winter runway moments to see which styles that graced the catwalk back then should be revived for today's fashionphiles. 

Gianfranco Ferrè Pret a Porter Autumn-Winter '85/'86

The '80s will forever be remembered as the era of flashy fashion, but not all designers released over-the-top designs then. Such is the case with Gianfranco Ferrè's pret-a-porter A/W '85/'86 collection. It was not as bright and extravagant but still had a bit of flamboyance. 

You can see that some designs here already had their modern revivals like the high-waisted wide leg trousers and fleece-lined jackets. But what we're eyeing here are the big shoulder pads, the beautiful purple shift blouse, and the multi-coloured stripes design

Valentino Haute Couture Autumn-Winter '89/'90

Valentino's designs are characterised as very classy, ladylike with a touch of edginess to it. In other words, it's undeniably divine. Their designs for the A/W '89/'90 Haute Couture collection are no exception. 

The collection was abundant of checks and stripes, both of which made a comeback this season. What we're looking out for is the revival of the exquisite geometrical prints and mosaic designs.

Yves Saint Laurent Haute Couture Autumn-Winter '95/'96

Yves Saint Laurent designs never fail to impress. Just look at the beautiful pieces from Haute Couture A/W '95/'96. The styles are timeless and most are still popular today. Take note of the lovely silk skirt, the lightweight, cream outwear with a hoodie (perfect for the tropics, right?), and double-breasted clothing design. We'll be crossing our fingers that these will once again hit the runway.

Versace Autumn-Winter '02/'03

These futuristic and fashion-forward designs by Donatella emerged in the early years of the new millennia for the A/W 02/03 fashion show. Don't you agree that those mesmerising psychedelic prints should have a resurgence? Considering the current trends, we're thinking that it will take a more subtle, minimalist design — more of an accent than the main design.

Did you also catch the candy pink clothing? We're all about millennial pink nowadays but it would be nice to explore the deeper hues of pink in the coming years.
