Has anything ever been more Super than the Supermodels of the 90’s? Whatever they were, they seemed absolutely fearless.

Salvaging the early 90’s memory: here are some favorite parts of the best of it:

Blur elevates a grungy/baggy era with their dedicated stab at Laddish Mod Suiting (Fred Perry Shirts, Clarkes Desert Boots, Docs)…

Sassy, of course. This cover gives an example of the first and best (redux) versions of Witchy poo/ 60’s rock and roll (tights, short skirts, chunky boots)…


Drew Barrymore looking every inch the movie star face. Forever young.

2011 revisits the 90’s. In the constant cultural recycler, even the much derided black choker is back. For the right price. (Dolce & Gabbana)

There is nothing new under the sun. This is so painfully late 80’s/early 90’s, or SPRING 2012 they tell us! But we never really did get over it, did we?

POP CULTURE, MEDIA, MUSIC, FILM & TV, LIT, PHOTO Founded in Toronto, Canada in January 2015, DISARM is 100% Independent Music, film, 80′s, 90′s, 2000′s, cultural and media criticism, art, blogging culture, social networking & culture, coverage of the Toronto (& Canadian) arts/live music/festival scene, and music scene in U.K., Europe & U.S. We create original content including exclusive interviews with musical artists and writers; articles about music, film/TV, lit, pop culture & media, original writing and photography, journalism & photography from a unique & authentic point of view. We don't cover McMusic. We are not nostalgic: We write about significant and revolutionary artists from (mainly) 80s & 90s because they are relevant and important and active today. Nostalgia is death. We give emerging bands a platform for their music & messages as the next wave of real music. They are under-reported and most music of quality is underground now and they deserve all your love. We welcome writers & contributors as well as pitches or new music to consider for review: email us at disarmmagazine@gmail.com
