There are voluminous shoulders and gigot sleeves, balloon-shaped and exaggerated volumes with clear references to the 80s, designed by Sophie Et Voilà and Inmaculada García.

The 90s make their appearance with unexpected and eccentric manufacturing (Carla Ruiz), origami sleeves (Isabel Sanchis) or bulky on the shoulders and tight at the wrists, in the typical ‘leg-of-mutton’ shape (Pronovias and Yolancris).
