Throughout his career, Yves Saint Laurent famously drew inspiration from all of the fine arts, including painting, opera, the ballet, literature, poetry, and the works of Shakespeare. The influence of various painters on Saint Laurent’s creations dates back to his famous fall/winter 1965 “Mondrian Poliakoff” collection. His spring/summer 1988 collection, a tribute to cubism and impressionism and the work of Georges Braque and Vincent Van Gogh, was a natural fit into his oeuvre, with jackets embro

Stephen Sprouse was a pioneer in merging street style and high fashion. During his early career at Halston, he was drawn to the downtown New York punk scene.

Fendi was an important feature of the globally renowned, flourishing 1980s Italian fashion landscape, yet it retained its original status as one of the traditional accessories brands that helped shape Italy’s classification as a historic center of artisanal, high-quality craftsmanship. Fendi’s 1988 collection, with Karl Lagerfeld at the helm, was at once bold, whimsical, ironic, and rebellious in terms of color, motif, silhouette, and accessories.

For the spring/summer 1988 season, the concept of power dressing still guided designers. Menswear continued to provide inspiration for both the silhouettes and the materials for women’s wear. Rocha offered work-appropriate looks with an overall softer feel, with added feminine details such as a crochet lace collar.
