Retro Modernism

“I wanted to create a futuristic heroine who was believable in the future, but with her feet firmly planted in film noir past.”

-Michael Kaplan


The assorted pieces of vintage Thierry Mugler that we got in last week strongly remind me of the 80’s Sci-Fi classic “Blade Runner”. I love how both the futuristic film and the designer clothing are from the 80’s but are clearly inspired by the sharp tailoring of the 40’s.  The curved seams and strong shoulders are used to give the clothing and costumes a feeling of nostalgia without appearing dated.

Fortunately “Blade Runner” is set in Los Angeles in 2019 so you still have time to stock up for the noir future via our selection of Thierry Mugler!
