My favourite fashion theme Alien Futuristic 80s has hit the mainstream hardcore this year & I couldn't be happier. Not that I will ever see any of these items w/ my own eyes but inspiration-wise the shine, man-made materials, unusual colour schemes, and strange silhouettes are so different from anything in years.
This year, the Balenciaga inspiration was to mix 80s post-punk office wear with what we may have pictured 2012 fashion would become.
I LOVE the molten dipped ribbed knit top!
