1984-91 the Paninaro/post-paninaro years

Nike Internationalist,Boston Firenze jacket,Fiorucci sweatshirt,Et Vous
green label jeans and Ricardo Bini shirt - Fairly typical sort of look
around 1985 with jogging shoes largely taking over from tennis trainers
and the Nike model shown here were very big all over the country
especially during 84 and 85.No mention of this era would be complete
without a shout to Fiorucci which was a very popular label as was it's
subsidiary Classic Nouveaux.The Fiorucci jeans and sweatshirts were 2 of
their better products.Loose fitting, usually hooded jackets were worn with
baggy rather than straight leg jeans - these would be wider at the top and
taper in to a more narrow bottom.Popular jean brands were
Ball,Valentino,Armani,CI7,Liberto and Et Vous shown here.Again it simply
isn't possible to show every single piece and designer and have just
chosen a selection of brands to give an idea of what was around.
