Move over, millennials. Another '80s fashion trend is coming back. Z Cavaricci pants, the high-waisted, pleated, and tapered trousers popularized in the '80s, are returning to celebrate their 30 anniversary. The new Z Cavaricci range will be sold exclusively online and is launching later this month, according to a press release. And they are actually pretty freakin' awesome.
"Cavariccis," as they were called, were totally emblematic of "big" style of the late '80s and early '90s. Who didn't wear a pair of the oversized, wing-like pants with an I.O.U. sweatshirt, purchased at the now-defunct Merry Go Round? I may or may not be admitting that I did...
Brand founder James Cavaricci launched his fashion company in L.A. all the way back in 1982, and it's ripe for an encore. As Business of Fashion reports, Cavaricci is self-funding the revival.
"I'm pretty confident that these will become collectibles immediately, and we're really very excited to launch them," he told the publication.
The limited edition anniversary collection will feature 500 women's items, with plans to expand further with a men's brand.
The Z Cavaricci revival is a bit pricier than its roots. The items will range from $225 to $245. Fabrics include twill and Japanese denim.
The return of Z Cavaricci and the signature "Cateye" pants will certainly inspire plenty of nostalgia among '80s and '90s kids.
The color palette will be white, black, orange, olive, light vintage denim, and dark vintage denim.
The vertical white Z Cavaricci label along the zipper was iconic back in the day. And it's back.
That silhouette is so vintage. The visual takes you right back to the '80s and '90s.
If you pair the somewhat voluminous, poufed-around-the-pocket pants with a cropped top, you achieve the right balance. And then you can groove like MC Hammer.
OK, so Cavariccis weren't this voluminous, but the silhouette is similar. Welcome back, Z Cavaricci.
