Caryn Franklin and Pam Hogg tick all the trend boxes
In case you didn't get the memo, the eighties is back in all its theatrical glory. The revival of the dress-up-and-party decade was underscored last night at i-D magazine's SOUL i-D book launch with a mammoth exhibition organised by Diesel and Christies. Jostling for cocktails and blinis were Alfie Allen, Jaime Winstone and Nick Grimshaw, but showing the young pretenders how it's done were party pros and old pals Caryn Franklin and Pam Hogg (basking in a post-LFW afterglow and sporting a rather elegant wet-look cape dress). We couldn't help lusting after Ms Franklin's spectacular old-skool biker jacket. Biker chic has been tearing up the runways in every fashion capital so far - trust Caryn (a former i-D fashion editor) to be ahead of the curve. Now where's our stud gun?
