Fashion Catches Disco Fever
July 23, 2015, New York – Get your groove on as Fashion One, the premiere international fashion, entertainment and lifestyle broadcaster, puts a spotlight on this year’s seventies inspired runway collections in the new special, Ready-to-Wear: Seventies Revival. Experience a flashback to the decade of glam rock, lava lamps and roller disco as designers bring the best of seventies fashion back into the mainstream.
The fashion world is going through a serious seventies revival. In the Paris Fashion Week Spring Summer 2015 shows, designers rocked their looks with “In The Band” inspirations. The industry’s very own rule breaker, Dries van Noten, paid homage to seventies rock ‘n’ roll with his metallic jacquard prints and patchwork-like patterns on baggy trousers, breezy chiffon tops and glamorous midi dresses that any glam rock star would be jealous of. Meanwhile, French fashion house Louis Vuitton showcased the decade’s rock culture with rock ‘n’ roll frocks, velvet trousers and mismatched leather skirts that even the decade’s most iconic artists would love to wear.
In Milan and Tokyo, the runways took a page from “Saturday Night Fever” with a vibrant disco influence. The excessive glamour of the decade was visible in English designer Henry Holland’s collection with glittery eye makeup and psychedelic prints and the almost excessive use of colours, and metallic fabrics. Italian designer Emilio Pucci opted for a sexier, more refined take on seventies disco as the decade’s iconic party girl got a grown up makeover with fitted, deep V dresses and the disco pantsuit presented appearing in striking reds and salmons.
