Clothing Trend: Hyper Color Fabrics

Wait, is it just me or did the 80s just happen to come back in all its quirky glory? First it was leggings (and I'll admit that I rocked the trend, and I may or may not be still rockin' it...), then came those insane rayban style glasses, tunic dresses, metallic spandex leggings ala American Apparel...and now the hypercolor fabric is BACK in full swing. American Apparel has recently debuted its line of the heat-sensitive fabrics, known as Thermochromatic tees. Design label Anzevino and Florence has also hopped on the 80s train to incorporate hypercolor fabrics in their line. In addition to their cute feminine and masculine styles, they have added simple shirts and thin scarves in hypercolor. I'm not a huge fan of this, as I have visions of handprints all over and people walking around breathing into their scarves...yikes. But here it is, the "new" trend of summer 08.
