8-Bit Fashion by Kunihiko Morinaga

Hi, do you remember the 8-bit era of the 80s? The personal computer revolution just started, and video games became the new toys for generations to come.

Pixelated graphics, low resolution, and synthetic sound demanded a lot of imagination then, but despite or even because of those technological limitations classic games such as Pac Man, Moon Shuttle or Tetris are even now very joyful and exciting to play.

Many of the early high-tech games were developed in Japan by the way, and it is now a Japanese fashion designer, who let the fashion world remember vintage games and vintage fashion in a unique fashion show.

Kunihiko Morinaga fashion collection low is a creative combination of vintage fashion with pixelated and colorful elements and patterns resembling the arcade style of the 80s. Even the shoes and tights got pixelated.
