Check thearabparrot. He seems to be their token photographer out of all of them. Also, he's looks like he really misses the 90's lol.

Designer Brian Lichtenberg is trying to rembrace 90's style. And if I'm not mistaken, he's designed a lot of clothes for M.I.A.'s tour.
Also, American Apparel is popular, in my opinion, not only because they sell basics, but because it is very "90's." The colors, the cuts, the fits. So 90's to me.

Others?

...nothing is original.




about 1990s style?
i'm remembering now--because of the bodysuit talk a few posts earlier...I wasn't a fan of the club wear (dee-lite, rupaul...) but it'd be fun to see some of that stuff around...very kitsch 1960s gogo--the party flipside of a more straightforward 1960s revival that i really wouldn't mind coming back again...and it sort of did musically w/ The Strokes, White Stripes, Hives in 2001 (but the 1990s music equivalent was Britpop--Oasis, Blur, Pulp, Elastica,... and some Indie/Alternative like Stereolab).
One thing is being rooted, everything is rooted on something, another thing is a faithful copy of what is done in the past, I love all those bands that you mentioned, enough to have the cds myself. Do I think they are original? No way. They follow a formula of the past, a nice formula, but still a formula.

The early 90's in my opinion, were the last original era in everything, I'm not saying that makes them better, I prefer our 60's and 70's copies, than anything I wore on those times, but creativity is long lost.

i totally understand what you're saying. It seems like mid-90s to late 90s was not about moving forward but going back and that has led to what fashion is now..that cycle. But looking at the mens' shows, it seems like that's coming back. Not all shows but some are (trying to move forward).

i love the early 90s.....the neon, the slim fit figure hugging dresses, harsh black&white....it's interesting to see how people are updating it and making it fresh.

though i whole-heartedly do NOT support neon nylon grandma tracksuits, worn with neon sports caps. people see those looks and think THAT's what the early 90s was about, and therefore fear it's comeback.

"irony" is beginning to piss me off

i found a crazy colored adidas jacket from the thrift store that fit perfectly and they go well with this Michael Jackson shirt that says, "i am bad" haha, with my acid skinnies, and old school nikes. Heavenly!!... i get compliments all the time. I may need to post a picture.
Hee! I'm with you. I was 12 in 1991 and was sooo the into the hip-hop of that time (and the alternative rock stuff, too but not as passionately). A Tribe Called Quest, Black Sheep, Del, KRS-1, Cypress Hill. And I adored Digable Planets. I wore the super baggy jeans and colorful stuff, the big hoop earrings. Girbauds anyone? To this day I still wear my Addidas shell-toes. Although I don't wear the ridiculously baggy pants anymore, I find myself wearing variations of that stuff. To some degree. I was just saying how much I miss the 90's

We can only pray that this will not happen. Ever.
