Catsuits

Kim Kardashian’s Met Gala look was an indicator of things to come, as much of Balenciaga’s presentation was filled with black spandex catsuits that felt like a nod to ’80s street style.

Shroomy Toile

Bright Cutouts

Mixed Media

Leave it to Hermès to go for that mixed media look, but keep it as traditional as possible, presenting an army of mix-and-match separates in buttery leather and sturdy canvas.

Volume

Leave it to Lanvin to not only promote a voluminous ’80s silhouette through a full-skirted mini dress, but also with embellished flowers that provide even more of a 3D vibe as the garment flows through the wind.

The New Boho

Isabel Marant is a pro at that very specific surfer meets boho meets tailored aesthetic. With her eyelet Victorian-inspired tops and 1980s-era low-slung surfer shorts, she proves that anything goes.
