Fashion is all about reinvention and Norma Kamali is no exception. This season she reintroduced her iconic 1980 “Sweats” collection, a lineup that this paper featured on its front page in November 1980. At Kamali’s presentation on Thursday, she said that story propelled powersuit-wearing women into casualwear, inspiring a generation of Flashdancers.

This time around, Kamali used lighter-weight fabrics in black, white and gray for silhouettes that included a cropped top, a sleeveless mididress and elastic-ankle pants. She also tackled activewear with a Supplex knit, micro-mesh and technical jersey group with functional bra tops, baseball jackets and leggings with strategically placed mesh vents. The latter could be perfect for the newest dance craze.
