early '80s madonna, when she was born for us

Well, Happy Birthday Madonna and happy birthday to all leos (I am one of those :)!

To celebrate let's go back to when we learned of Madonna (that's when she was born for us)... The 80's!

Her look back then is easily my favorite. I guess the Eighties look on Madonna is so attractive because back then she was innocent and real... a girl like us, ambitious, trying to make it happen in the Big Apple. When she was sporting this look of the 80's she did not and could not know she would be an icon, she was just herself.

Of course she also was young and cute (her daughter Lourdes reminds us of Madonna in the 80's today) and she made a look with what she had laying around the house, I imagine.

Of course many styling details pictured here are back in style today in 2011, including the duffle bag, the poka dot flats, head scarf bands, high waist jeans, boyfriend blazer, stacked bangle bracelets, etc. it's all here and now, but I have not seen that tightly tied scarf around the necks of our generation yet...

Madonna sported this tight tied style a lot, as correctly and fittingly repeatedly portrayed in these photographs. I'll steal this look for Fall!

Back in style you say? Good, because the 80s were awesome.

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
