1980 and beyond

The styles after 80s are very eclectic. They mix elements of punk, disco and grunge and transform them into new styles.

One of the things that really makes an impression those days is the mix between candy sweet colors and elements of disco and elements of Gothic. It looks like many of the contemporary commercial patterns and (t-shirt) designs are playing with the idea of romantic dramatism of death.

Even in baby clothes. I really believe that it is a sigh for an end. Probably the end of this mixing eclectic time.
Chaos, fragmentation (somehow similar to dada), horror, schizophrenia (remember the bluetooths- people really look mentally ill)- this is only one side of the currents.
The other side is smart (not so sweet but still polished) advertisement (and actually attitude)
