The Status Set

These regal colors and status prints on these garments scream high society.  Perfect for a socialite gathering in the 80s.  They make me think of those amazing passages in Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities where he describes in such great detail the clothes that people are wearing at the parties Sherman McCoy attended.  I remember being really impressed by the way how descriptive he was about the fashions of the status set.  I'd love to read his take on these babies.
