1991 was the best year


In fashion, seasons and cycles may move fast, but really they’re mostly on repeat, looking back to an aesthetic from a previous decade, reinventing looks from years gone by. Usually there is a general rule that 20 years is the acceptable turn over time for an era to be reinvented.

So why does looking back to the nineties feel so so right when we’re only 9 years down the line?

Either way, we’re pushing on regardless, and yen magazine picked up on this mood this time last year, which depending on your stance makes them either ahead or very very behind the crowd.

For your fancy, a tribute to 1991 from yen magazine October 2007.

and ps, just so you know, i think baseball caps are the way forward (or back..)

90's fashion can be quite chic and it also brings back good memories of my childhood for me - nostalgia :)

I really like those white shoes. The looks all seem pretty relaxed, I'd like to revisit the 90s.

it's so right.you should never throw or give your stuff away because it's always gonna come 'in' again.sometimes my mother tells me about clothes she used to have or i see them on pics but she doesn't have them anymore..such a pity!

the clothes are great but i really hope we don't return to the late 90s hair! flat overstraightened does not work for the majority of people, myself included!

Lula said...

i love the white shoes too. it's odd, that wasn't so long ago, why is it hard to remember? i was really on a different fashion trip then. minimal tech. minimal tech platform maryjanes. a curly blunt bob. actually, it was kind of nice.
