Fashion loves to look back and there's no escaping the retro feels this season with nostalgia at an all time high. We've seen a nineties renaissance, from Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtle films, to refreshed Nintendo 64 games and who could escape the revived Pokemon mania? Our latest summer time staples take inspiration from this decade and references the era with an air of relaxation that remains cool, yet feels current.
This decade was a time of conspicuous consumption, opting into a brand and wearing it loud and proud. Our take sees brand heavy promos move on to slogans, statements and mantras from the cheeky to the chill! Letting your look speak for itself.
Plays on proportion were always big in the nineties, from extreme oversizing on trousers, to sports crop tops – both hot hitters in menswear. Don't worry, nothing that intense has remerged yet! Instead our statement silhouettes come into play via our wider-fit chinos, which take inspiration from the era’s downtown skater cool but add an air of retro rebel. Elsewhere we see a selection of fits and detailing across t-shirts and sweatshirts from long-lines, dropped hems, scooped necks and oversizing, so there’s nothing stopping you from finding your fit!
Who remembers mesh string vests being all the rage? If not then Rihanna may have put in the work and helped with the latest revival. Our super cool mesh t-shirt is a scorching style that looks great layered over a tee or playing peek-a-boo underneath one.
Now we couldn’t talk about the era without touching upon rave culture, which seeps in via our stylish acid wash selection of t-shirts, jeans and shorts, perfect for posing or pumping up the jam in! A firm favourite is our bold bright cloud print acid wash t-shirt in the seasons key shade of pink, offset against grey and inky blue.
Finally, let’s not forget the bling! Ok we don’t mean going overboard like rappers of the time did with bold and garish chains. What we have in mind is simpler statements of silver-look chains and bracelets. Perfect at injecting a sense of personality and adding the finishing touches to an outfit.
