This is, I suppose, inevitable. With bands like The Hives, the Click Five, Kaiser Chiefs and others reviving the New Wave genre of power-pop music, someone had to have the idea to run some other '80s fashions and ephemera out for an encore. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out -- when students at the college I used to work at would have "'80s parties," they never seemed to get the looks quite right, mixing some Flashdance with Pat Benatar and Madonna and giving it a ZZ Top video vixen hemline. Which is probably how well we '80s people did when we were younger and we tried to dress like hippies.
On an unrelated note, just after the second picture in the article we're reminded we're reading a British newspaper, as we meet one Peter Newbould, who works for his company as "director of toiletries." That's probably not nearly as interesting as it sounds.
In the meantime, I teach the Cadillac Walk, so shut up and dance.
