Soviet Fashion: Style Pages From 1980s U.S.S.R.

Were Soviet women dressed in drab, utilitarian garb – not according to their fashion magazines.

I recently came across some Soviet fashion magazines from 1987-1989 and thought I’d share. Like most Americans, during the Cold War, I pictured all Soviet women as homely and hardened by their harsh life, dressed in drab utilitarian garb. As these pages prove, that was far from the case – and certainly not in the last years before the break up. What we find are fashions not so different to a JC Penney catalog of the same period. Let’s have a look…

Japanese Cosplayer’s ‘BoobPack’ Becomes A Viral Trend On Twitter

A female Japanese cosplayer is hoping to start an unusual fashion trend that requires a little more than just a significant amount of confidence to pull off.

Created by Yui Okada, the new fashion accessory is based on the handy backpack. However, instead of being hung just atop the shoulders, the bag is designed to be worn with the straps latched around the breasts. Okada, who describes herself as a maker of “adult-oriented cosplay-style DVDs” shared images of her odd-looking, yet intriguing creations on Twitter.

Okada has chosen to not to show her face in her tweets as she is reportedly quite aware that she needs only two things to draw fans to her creation: 1. the product itself and 2. her curvaceous physique.

A.C.A.B – All Colors Are Beautiful

A.C.A.B is a newcomer to the world of streetwear brands, a federating and rebellious postulate, born of the tragic news that saw young people around the world rise up in the face of brutality from state authorities.

Like Mathieu Kassovitz, like Kendrick Lamar, A.C.A.B denounces violence to federate, raises these news high, not to forget, without ever wanting to divide. The acronym A.C.A.B was popularized during the British miners’ strike of 1984-1985 during struggles between miners and police officers.

It is also an anti-racist movement, this term meaning “All Colors Are Beautiful”. In his first lookbook, A.C.A.B puts forward men and women, white or black, plain and brave, with a covered face, as if to mean that everyone can one day be concerned, and that the best way to fight is to display it. Part of the profits will be donated to associations fighting against inequalities.
