The past and the future blend and learn from each other. In the 1980s and 1990s when they dared to express themselves and were uneasy with the status quo, there emerged signature items, such as red-and-blue sports suits, color-blocked POLO shirts, and tight pleated tennis skirts. And the collocation rule was pairing them with a neckerchief, a hair band and high-waist jeans. The nostalgic beauty and youthful sports style display the fashion charm of that era. In the new season, women’s knitwear draws color proportion inspirations from old photos, revivifies key points and representative items of retro sports, and then recreates them. Therefore, previous fashionable styles revive in modern fashion, and daily sports style is combined with fashion.
With the popularity of film and television media, a strong vibe of American culture was everywhere from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. With the rise of NBA, Hip Hop and street culture, Chinese sportswear gradually refers to European and American design elements. Color-blocked V-neck is reflected by American movies where California girls wear V-neck pullover and zip sweatshirts. Currently, as a key element in retro sports style, V-neck is color-blocked and applied to the vest and pullover, with velvet loose pants or pleated skirts to display the athleisure style. Shoes and bags also tend to be in moderately saturated colors to show the feature of times. For knitwear, it’s recommended to use velvet yarns like chenille to make a contrast with the overall look, practical and beautiful.
Color-blocked POLO shirts in the new season retain the color-blocking of the 1980s to 1990s, and create irregular geometry and V-shape through cross lines. The pair with loose jeans or deconstructed shorts can display the freedom and straightforwardness of the new era. Colors of items are moderately saturated to continue the retro charm. In the fashion videos of the 1990s, the model is wearing a red POLO shirt with white stripes, a black sheer skirt and orange stockings, which can be used as a reference currently.
In late 1980s and early 1990s, the POLO dress has already applied color-blocking to neckline and cuffs, very popular at that time. The contrast of red, white and blue tones is still the major design element of fashion brands like Fila and SPORTMAX. In the new season, POLO shirts are gradually switching towards ready-to-wear, and dominated by the comfortable and casual loose silhouette. The loose waist, lengthened dress and slit in the hemline work with a scarf to be retro. When added by a leather bag and red-and-blue cotton socks, the look is more daily and casual.
