The Return Of 80's Leather Fashion

Just like the hair and the shoulder pads 80's leather fashion was big! The bolder and brighter the better, fringed, studded, pleated and skin tight it was worn all ways and by anyone. From skirts and trousers to jackets and dresses you could dress top to toe in leather.

At the shop we've recently acquired a great selection of classic 80's leather clothing like this fabulous hot pink dress complete with poppers and 80's essential, the batwing sleeve

In the same shipment was this amazing blue leather trouser suit. Classic 80's pleated ankle length pants with batwing sleeve jacket that fastens on the hip.  Wear with a white t-shirt and push up the sleeves for a perfect 80's look!

1980's Blue Leather Trouser Suit

So if you fancy struting your stuff in some 80's leather pop into the shop, there's lots to choose from from in a wide choice of colours

Sierra by G-Plan

As a regular stockist of G Plan furniture we were excited to come across these wall units from their Sierra range.
The Sierra style was something of a throwback for G-Plan after their flirtation with Danish style in the 1960's. Bridging the gap between Kofod-Larsen and the 1970's Fresco range, Sierra has, if anything, more of the 1950's Brandon style to it, on the handles and the pale colouring for example.
This rare cabinet breaks down into four separate pieces, two base units and two sets of shelves, one with glass cabinet doors and one with a drop down bureau.

The green backing is interesting, something G-Plan never repeated, but actually very contemporary in the right setting.
We don't see a huge amount of Sierra, certainly nothing compared to Fresco for example, perhaps Sierra wasn't a great seller?

More details on our website  G-Plan Sierra
I've never seen a catalogue of the period but we've found a few images of other pieces from the range......
