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?
