Fashion Fall 2014: Postmodern Prints. Alchemia and Memphis are back in fashion-land at Chloé and Kenzo’s runway shows for Fall 2014. At Kenzo the combination of prints definitely shows the influence of the Italian interior designs of the eighties, done very tastefully and modern (NOW). Chloé’s designer Claire Waight Keller made use of the same squiggly-macaroni-abstract-little-postmodern-shapes, both in full-color an bi-color for allover prints. Less clear at Michael van der Ham’s show but we can see some post modern influences for sure, with thanks to the cuts at the hemline of the skirt! It’s just what we, at Mimi Berlin noticed, and amongst all the other loud grafitti-bomber-zipper-eighties retro fashion on the runways, we find these translations of the 1980s to be like a breath of fresh air. (if we could stay clear of our daily smokes that is)

Nothing new we hear you say? No, of course not! These Adidas sneakers were released around 2005 by Oki-Ni, Also inspired by the postmodern eighties, but executed in a different way than today on the catwalk
