This month, adidas Originals announced the return of the Stan Smith shoe. A trainer created in the Seventies and made infamous by the legendary player and its namesake.

There's been a surge in interest in the street style of the Eighties and Nineties of late. There is currently a major exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum on Eighties club fashion and a few months ago there was a photo show at the National Portrait Gallery.

Life automation is truly alive and kicking.
