For many, talking about 90s evokes nostalgic memories of a simpler period.
A time of new beginnings, of hope: Oasis, Bart Simpson and the possibility that Ross and Rachel would eventually be together. And today fashion is addressed to 90s, to that genuine and ingenuous time, trying to give new light to the trends of the past and enhancing its modernity.
Back to 90s Men Fashion Trends
At first it was the turn of sweatshirts, pouch, dungarees and even sneakers. And when we thought we hjust finished … the coordinated suits arrived, the same we worn in the time of gym in school. So, the revival of the 90s in men’s fashion is a mix of love/hate of our teenage world, between the desire for comfort and the desire to exceed.
But the return to fashion 90s brought even long-abandoned colors. The predecessor of the explosion of today’s EDM music was in fact the rave culture, which emigrated from Europe in the early 90s bringing with it multicolored bracelets (the famous Kandi) and all the rainbow colors that characterized this scene, now replicated through the use of bold hues and patterns.
The baroque print shirt by ASOS
The essence of the 90s is also the use of bold prints – such as the one in baroque style that was used on anything – from safety pins to shirts, beach towels to pillows. And in recent years this trend has re-emerged everywhere, revealing an obsession for the baroque print glorified by the return to the 90s.
The rediscovery of this Italian artistic tradition is revisited by ASOS in a pop art vision, with rich frames, black/white stripes and floral paintings printed on the shiny silk of a short-sleeved shirt – as in the outfit you see. I matched the baroque print shirt with a super skinny, medium washed jeans and a gray-beige suede pairt of sneakers with a red brick sole. A final outfit with an analogic taste.
