Video: What clothes from the 1990s are at the height of fashion again: The time for boiled bikes and bicycles (and not only) has come

Fashion is cyclical, and designers, indulging in nostalgia, periodically suggest returning to a particular era. And this time they decided to make a stop in the dashing 90s, where a riot of colors, oversized robes, experiments with style and the most unexpected combinations reigned. Interestingly, this time, non-couturiers were the first to pay attention to the trends of the last decade of the 20th century - the style first appeared “on the streets”, later settled in social networks, and only then eminent fashion houses drew attention to it. Well, it's time to audit your closets and get hold of things that have been waiting in the wings for so long. Although many of our compatriots associate the 90s with crimson jackets and checkered huge bags. But today we will not be talking about them.
It may seem to you that bicycles became popular thanks to Kim Kardashian. But this is not at all the case. In the 90s, Princess Diana herself was a fan of elongated tight Lycra shorts, who, by the way, had to choose a wardrobe in accordance with strict royal protocol. She also showed that a comfortable wardrobe item is suitable not only for sports, but is quite good in combination with sweatshirts.
Sisters Kardashian and Hailey Baldwin, who, one might say, breathed a second life into bicycles, went even further: they manage to combine the "symbol of the 90s" with strict jackets, loose shirts and crop tops. If you are not a fan of such experiments, take an example from Princess Diana, and you definitely won't be mistaken.
Dummy jeans appeared back in the 80s, but the real boom in them happened in the 90s. Of course, not all young people had the opportunity to acquire the cherished denim models, but a solution was found: just a few manipulations with boiling and chemicals (most often with whiteness) - a fashionable and, most importantly, a unique outfit is ready.
Now things made of boiled denim are more popular than ever: and even eminent designers did not stand aside from this seemingly manifestation of street style. So feel free to take wide mom jeans or high-waisted boyfriends, oversized jackets, sundresses, miniskirts or overalls.
But they did not live in denim alone in a dashing decade. Leather was in no way inferior to him in popularity. Mods of the 90s will surely remember that Julia Roberts once wore a coat made of this material, the stars of the TV series "Beverly Hills 90210" preferred jackets, and after the release of "The Matrix" in 1999, the style of Neo in a raincoat performed by Keanu Reeves copied everything.
So, leather is in trend again. Agree, a skirt made of this material looks much more interesting than the same model made of ordinary fabric. If you don't know where to start, monitor the pages of fashion bloggers on Instagram, you will definitely find several ideas from them. Do not be afraid to overdo it: dressing from head to toe in skin is only encouraged. And, of course, do not forget about the leather jackets, which, it seems, are not going to go out of fashion.
The "leopard" was especially honored in the 1980s. In the 90s, his popularity did not fade away, although the fashionable competition for him was "python" and "zebra". But for 30 years, animal prints have gone through a lot: if quite recently clothes with animal patterns were considered almost a sign of a lack of taste and vulgarity (the "leopard" was especially unlucky), now it is experiencing a rebirth. Moreover, it seems that fashion houses are simply crazy: if the "snake" is present on shoes and bags, "zebra" dilutes the office dress code, then "representatives of the cat family" attacked evening fashion. By the way, pay attention to the cow coloring, which is also a hello from the 90s.
The appearance of clothes in the so-called linen style in our garters is also a reference to the last decade of the 20th century. Then the whole world went crazy with supermodels Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss … With their light hand, very laconic silk combinations became popular. Practicality and elegance - this is what most likely attracted the girls then: despite the workload, celebrities always wanted to look attractive. And this is what modern women of fashion also appreciate.
Don't tell me you don't remember sweaters with strange ornaments and inscriptions? If not, then look at any photographs from those times and you will understand what this is about.
Yes, they are not quite cute, but they are so cozy and warm. Do you want to be known as a fashionista? Then choose a sweater with an ornament or with a lock on the neck - now this is one of the most relevant trends.
Do you know who is the culprit behind the 90s fashion craze for oversized sweaters, plaid shirts, ripped jeans? This is Kurt Cobain - the leader of the legendary band Nirvana. It was this style that the musician preferred, and his fans, without thinking at all that they looked unattractive in men's clothing, exploited this image with might and main. Of course, convenience comes first. That is why modern women of fashion also love grunge - they choose comfort from Paris to Tokyo.
Rough-soled sneakers seem to have permeated all walks of life, and are paired with just about everything. And this season they will not give up their fashionable positions. True, they have already begun to compete with military-style boots that can be worn both with jeans and with dresses.
It is difficult to imagine a person of their era of the 90s, who would not have a belt bag, and for traders in the markets it was completely irreplaceable (money should always be with you, just in case). Today, such accessories are almost not associated with traders and speculators, but have remained at the peak of popularity for several seasons. Practicality and convenience - these are the main qualities of bags for which women of fashion love them. And now you can find a large assortment of models: from decorated with rhinestones to laconic and sporty.
Hairpins decorated with pearls, velvet elastic bands, plastic headbands … Perhaps, in the dashing decade, almost every girl had such jewelry. Most recently, fashion critics laughed at these accessories, and today they are singing their praises again. And surely, if not with you, then your mother somewhere in the far corners of the dresser always has a crab with stones or a hairpin with rhinestones.
Aivazovsky is not only the sea, and Levitan is not only landscapes: We destroy stereotypes about the work of classical artists
Often the names of Russian artists are associated with genres that have been their creative roles throughout their career. It was in these genres that they became the unsurpassed aces of artistic excellence. So, for the majority of viewers - if Levitan, then, by all means, - landscape lyrics of central Russia, if Aivazovsky is a mesmerizing sea element of the Black Sea, and Kustodiev is not at all conceivable outside of a bright festive popular print. But, today we will destroy the prevailing stereotypes and pleasantly surprise
How people dressed in the USSR in the 1990s, and what fashionable things from that time are in fashion again today
Daring and unfounded - this is how the fashion of the 90s is characterized, raging (you simply cannot say otherwise) in the post-Soviet space, when everyone wanted to stand out as best he could, without having any opportunity for it. This direction was never given a name, but the "fashionable greetings" of those times are now especially considered very relevant. Crimson jackets, yellow leggings and crazy waves on the hair - it seems that the fashion of the 90s opposed itself to difficult times and, thus, helping
Once we wrote about how skillfully creative people are able to use available materials to create their imperishable works. For example, using clothes, because not a single person living in modern society can do without it, which means that every second wardrobe is full of things to the eyeballs. So, the artist Thomas Voorn creates graffiti from clothes, and the Cuban creators Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz's - colorful sculptural installations
Soundsuits are amazing installations by Chicago-based creative artist Nick Cave. This work of art can hardly be called a sculpture in the way that they were originally designed to be worn and worn. Soundsuits are a cross between avant-garde clothing and an innovative musical instrument
Each new installation by the famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei causes a wide resonance in society, because this master of outrageousness knows how to surprise. We have already written about his installation "Forever Bicycles", 120 bicycles he installed in 2011 in Taiwan. Bicycles, one of the most popular types of transport in China, have become a real symbol of the Celestial Empire in the work of this artist. This year, 3144 two-wheelers have already become the highlight of the annual Nuit Blanche festival held in
