The 90s Are Back, Kind Of…

The 1990s is often remembered as a decade of relative peace and prosperity: The Soviet Union fell, ending the decades-long Cold War, and the rise of the Internet ushered in a radical new era of communication, business and entertainment. But most of all it was a special time for British culture and a decade to be remember in British history. Britpop was at its peak, The Spice Girls were No.1 every week imaginable and it also saw the release of classic movies such as Pulp Fiction, The Shawshank Redemption, Forest Gump, Fight Club and Toy Story. It was a time to feel alive and a time for young people to experiment with drugs, their sexuality and clothes, whilst bands like Nirvana, REM, Oasis and The Verve were the soundtrack to that experimenting with their ill-fitted clothes, long hair, tiny sunglasses and token cigarettes most likely bought over by a mate in a suitcase from Spain. To the oldies of you out there this will bring a wave of sickness at the thought of those homeless looking teens dragging themselves around the streets of London, high, drunk and smelly. But to the rest of us it’s a time of thanks, having been the spawning of the Grunge scene which originally started in the US. To uneducated outsiders the Grunge scene was, well, dirty. Ripped clothes, patched up flannel shirts and long greasy hair. But to the fashion industry it was a spark of rebellion, a reminder that ripped jeans were ok and that style was more than what the 70s & 80s thought it was. Well, thanks to Abercrombie & Fitch you can have a little chunk of 90’s back in your wardrobe with their 90’s Jeans. The 90’s Slim Jeans sit slight higher on the waist and are slimmer through the thigh in their A&F vintage stretch fabric and broken-in denim feel. These jeans truly pay homage to a fit that captures the essence of 90’s authenticity through washes and fabrics, this is the kind of denim that you dream about finding in a vintage store.
£72.00, Available Abercrombie.com
