Nineties fashion looms large on the runways

Hey Guys!!

I found this article is from BBC. There were no other articles on the subject so I will only be using one.

The article was about how the 90’s fashion is becoming more common on the runway.

“In the late nineties, I lived for a time off Portobello Road in West London. I have particularly fond memories of the girls clustered around the pubs in the evenings in slip dresses, shrugged-on neon anoraks, and bright silver Nike Air Max ‘97s, or perhaps, if the weather was fine, a midriff-baring halter top, low-slung raw denim jeans and striped Adidas shower slides (backless, open-toed slippers), worn either with or without socks. Those looks were formative to my sense of style, and I was reminded of them yet again as I made the rounds of New York and London fashion weeks.

And that’s because the nineties are back. Not the grunge nineties, but something more particular–that late decade, rave and Britpop-inflected moment when street style got very sporty. The muse, both then and now, was the model Stella Tennant. The poetic photographs Mark Borthwick took of her back in ’97, looking tomboyishly cool in camisoles and slouchy pants, undoubtedly featured on many a brand’s mood board for Spring 2014.

In New York, for instance, the number one item for spring was probably the slip dress, exemplified nicely at Rag & Bone and Band of Outsiders, and possibly perfected for all time by Olivier Theyskens, who seemed to come into his own at Theyskens’ Theory this season. His finale looks, all gossamer slips and camisoles layered against each other  had an almost moving loveliness. The Band of Outsiders show had passages of real beauty, as well, and got there via an unexpected angle. Designer Scott Sternberg was really pushing the sporty thing this season; somehow, his parka and anorak riffs got at something dreamy.”

I really loved the article and thought it gave a lot of information on the subject.  The only thing I would suggest would be that I wish more articles covered the store.

Here is the article enjoy:
