Before Netflix, before the sagas like “Game of Thrones” – before the high-speed internet – “Twin Peaks” was.
It is not stretchy to say that without “Twin Peaks” there would be “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Riverdale” and “Gilmore Girls”. David Lynch’s police policy, which aired 30 years ago on April 8, 1990, brought Gothic Americana to the mainstream.
Equal parts “Twilight Zone” and “Dynasty,” “Twin Peaks” are a departure from the traditional storylines of popular prime-time dramas such as “L.A. Law” and “MacGyver.” Its legacy extends beyond its short-lived (two seasons, the third until its release in 2017) and beyond cult status, into Time and Rolling Stone covers and water cooler conversations worldwide.

The town of Westcoast, the backstory, the sexual escape and the lurking “darkness” lurking nearby, is not the only unsolved mystery of who killed the returning queen Laura Palmer. Woods. Shot in the film, the show was an exceptional one for TV at the time, with Lynch’s signature psychological gender surrealism (appearing in previous indie releases “Blue Velvet” and “Eraser Head”) visually and emotionally satisfying everyone’s tension.

This accent owes much to the show’s attire, protected by longtime Lynch collaborator Patricia Norris. Typical staples have been updated and worn with modern comfort from past decades, but the trends that define the next decade are still in their infancy, making “Twin Peaks” time out of date.
There is no shortage of compelling characters with different forms. From coffee-obsessed FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) to his beige trench coat and Brill-creamed officer cut, to Hawaii-shirted psychiatrist Dr. Jacoby (Russ Tamblyn), the Lady Lady (Katherine) appears in her. glasses.

Women in particular have the twin spirits of the oppression and desire of the town, and no more than pot-stirring teenager Audrey Horn (Sherlyn Fenn). Daughter of skiing tycoon Benjamin Horn, Audrey is bored, gin humorous and doesn’t care what anyone thinks. When we find her father gazing around in the wood-covered Great Northern Hotel, she is pictured in a 1950s girl with saddle boots and a pink Angora ater lookout, as she worries about a recent town murder and a group of Norwegian businessmen.

With Audrey trading her flats for red cat heels in her school locker or smoking cool in the girls’ bathroom, with her A-frame eyebrows and figure-hugging ater look, we shouldn’t be surprised. The scene where the lobbyists were pushed to pressure Hollywood to stop smoking on-screen actors – because that’s cool.

The obvious successor to Veronica Audrey’s Teen Vamp personality in “Riverdale,” however, is 90’s Courtney Love, with her broken pin-up look; Rory and Lorelai, independent and enthusiastic of “Gilmore Girls,” were thrown in with some jeans and MAC lipstick; And the gutsy and seductive cheerleader parenting of “Glee.”

At the other end of the mid-century spectrum, Donna, the good-hearted daughter of a town doctor, was cut from the finest girl-next-door garment. As she breaks down in tears in the middle of the class, her best friend Laura suddenly finds out that something terrible has happened, but it’s hard to get distracted by her impeccable nails.
But Lynch’s craze didn’t end with the 1950s. Double Or Diner Owner Norma (played by Peggy Lipton of “Bewitched” and “The Mod Squad” fame) updates the look of a working-class diner on “Alice” that ran from 1974 to 1985, bringing the elegance of the ballgown with integrated apron and leg-of-mutton To her blue-and-white uniform full of sleeves.

Similarly, Josie Packard (Jon Chen), the town’s former mill owner’s extraordinary chic widow, dispels pure glamor. With a crop of red lips and a crop of jet-black hair, she bridges the gap between 1980s power suits and more relaxed tailoring that takes hold in the 90s. Whether she is wearing a green silk bathrobe, red ater look, or high-waisted check pants paired with a structured brown cardigan, Josie always looks directly to the runway.
