Fashion fiasco or normal trend rival? Actually, every fashion trend comes back again and again. This also applies again and again to parts from the eighties. Whether you like it or not. The fashion industry regularly calls the eighties for the fashion trend. But do we really want to have this fashion gray in our closets again?

Whether at Zara or H & M : you can find bodysuits everywhere. The favorite tops of the eighties are actually totally impractical? The whole Rumgefummel, if you want to go to the toilet. So we send the body back to the 80ies. We do not want you in 2017!
