1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony
I was on Flickr looking for some Opening Ceremony photos. Instead, I found these beautiful old school photographs of the 1984 Summer Olympics. Check out all the colors people use to bear on their backs. I think looking back, nostalgia egregiously reimagines and alters the fashion sense of the 80’s. The result is 80’s parties or 80’s nights with cut-off sweaters, scrungies, and every cliche you can think of. Maybe there were a lot of fashion mistakes made, or regrets you could say. Nonetheless, fashion builds on the decades that precede it and the 80’s contributed a palette of colors that serves to inspire many of today’s collections.
