The 90s were a strange time for fashion. Very few people managed to look cool. Gwen Stefani was one of them. And these things were on the runways:
Hussein Chalayan F/W 1998. This is super good to have in case you need to eat an emergency sushi meal.
Givenchy F/W 1997 Haute Couture. But… does it come in black?
Issey Miyake S/S 1999. A frock to clothe you AND 21 of your closest friends. It’s 22-in-1!
Lydia Delgado S/S 1995. This dress is watching you.
Alexander McQueen S/S 1997. Walking is impossible. But who cares? It’s fashun.
Comme des Garcons S/S 1996. Please, please let clown hair be the next hair fad. Please.
Walter Van Beirendonck S/S 1996. This is, hands down, the most 90s thing that happened in the 90s.
Issey Miyake 1998. Um… you have a little… uh… something on your dress.
Alexander McQueen F/W 1996. High fashion plumber’s bum, anyone?
Thierry Mugler s/s 1996. Wear it to work. Wear it to dinner. Wear it to meet the boyfriend’s parents. Versatility is key.
Alexander McQueen F/W 1995. Lady Gaga foreshadowing.
Olivier Theyskens F/W 1999. You mean you’ve never wanted to dress as a bow made of toilet paper? Really?
Vivienne Westwood Red Label F/W 1999. Pushing the boundaries of socially acceptable layering… and face painting.
Comme des Garcons S/S 1997. Flattering for every body type.
Issey Miyake Menswear S/S 1998. A giant Slip n’ Slide? Why not?!
Hussein Chalayan F/W 1998. Nice box.
Yohji Yamamoto F/W 1998. Hey bridezilla, you’re gonna need one hell of a wide aisle to walk down in that dress.
Complice F/W 1996. Bad hair day?
Philip Treacy F/W 1998 Haute Couture. These are good cause they’re just super wearable.
Givenchy S/S 1996. Naomi Campbell has never looked better.
