Wanted: 8-Bit Haute Couture From Fashionary


Recently, it seems like the internet has been all about the retro 8-bit reminiscing. We’ve given you a lesson in 8-bit art history and even played an 8-bit Saved by the Bell game, and now the kind folks over at It’s Nice That have turned us on to Fashionary’s 8-bit high fashion plates, depicting some of our favorite haute ensembles in all their pixellated glory. It’s a little strange to see something that is usually so focused on detail (hemlines are important, people, just ask Nina Garcia!) in its most representative form, but hey, fashion is no stranger to color blocking. Regardless, we think the end result is pretty cool, and we’ve collected a few of our favorites here. Check out the next generation in fashion after the jump, and head over to Fashionary to browse even more outfits and, if you just can’t get enough, to buy prints to hang by your closet forever and ever.
