Fashion continues 80s legwear focus
The relentless march of the early-80s influence continues to sweep across the global catwalks with yet another designer unveiling a distinctly retro style.

Phi, a New York-based luxury women's fashion retailer revealed a glamorous offering to the gods of good design at the recent debut of its new fall collection, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Tutus, bustiers and zip-front skirts jostled for the public's attention with wool crepe, cashmere and "splashes of teal, orange and fuchsia", it continues.

One audience member told the publication: "That sort of Day-Glo fluorescent, tights with the fishnets, reminded me of the darker, edgier Betsy Johnson."

Elsewhere in New York's Fashion Week, tweeds were making an unlikely but attractive comeback.

CBS News reports that despite usually being the fabric of choice for grannies and college professors, several designers have used softer versions of the material to create a stunning autumn line-up.
