Late '83-'84 especially. Really sensationalized in the press as "post-apocalyptic," avant-garde, and dominated by black, but really not too different from what some British designers were doing at the time, and also sort of an extension of some of the unconstructed, oversized clothes of the 70s. I still love the oversized, strongly textured, deliberately worn-looking look of these clothes, and I had friends at the time who loved Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto.
