The classic 90s trend gets a modern makeover.
The 90's have been ever present on the runways of major designers for several seasons now, staking a claim as one of fashion’s biggest love-hate relationships. The return of the Birkenstock, menswear-inspired minimalism and rave-kid ready-to-wear have taken us back to the days where they still played music on MTV and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” ruled the tube. Perhaps the most iconic ’90s trend was the flannel-clad rocker-who-just-rolled-out-of-bed look, inspired by the grunge movement of the early part of the era. But for F/W 2014, grunge has more of a grown-up factor than it once did, leaving the options almost limitless for looks that are an accurate representation of the style evolution from Nirvana-loving kid to fashion-forward adult. Tailored, layered and slightly rock ‘n’ roll, ready-to-wear labels like Dries Van Noten and Thakoon have most recently presented the trend true to its roots, but with an air of maturity. Call it a comeback that’s been saved by the bell.
