In the late 80s and into the 1990s, the influence of designer glamour had never been stronger. This was the era of Supermodels.
And because I know you'll enjoy this, here's a small video of some of the designer swimwear from 1995. Chanel, Gucci, Chloe, Versace, Donna Karan, need I go on?
The 1996 Chanel designs are somewhat reminiscent of the early years. Printed on pearls reproduce the bejeweled look Coco Chanel loved and which Karl Lagerfeld rekindled.
