Dear Shaded Viewers,
Sportswear was major news during Barcelona's 080. With colorful prints, roomy shapes and fun knitwear, Krizia Robustella's collection had a positive and dynamic spirit. She used geometric patterns and fluorescent tones to great effect. The overall mood was deliciously 80s: think Body Map meets Popy Moreni.
