The 90’s brought us denim dungarees and overalls and for spring/summer Philip Lim and Ashish have given them a modern update: Philip Lim opted for hot pink and lime green neon colours taking two trends from the 90’s and leather, the leather overalls which were featured in his resort collection have already sold out. Whilst Ashish went for a traditional light denim style with numbers printed over (following on the rest of the collection).
Other designers keeping with 90’s denim are; Roberto Cavalli and Balmain, they sent bleached jeans down the runway for spring summer. Acid Wash featured heavily and it looks like it’s something the highstreet is also picking up on. This 90’s grunge favourite is the perfect denim update for your wardrobe.
Crop tops from Rochas, Balmain, and Balenciaga are being adopted by the highstreet with a wide selection of midriff baring tops available from Republic. The Spice Girls popularised the crop tops in the 90’s and there are plenty of different designs including funky slogan tees.
Slip dresses are another 90’s favourite having a revival for this season, the Calvin Klein slip dress was made iconic thanks to Alicia Silverstone’s, Cher in the classic movie Clueless. And most recently Rihanna has been seen the red version of the dress. Bringing it forward for spring/summer is House of Holland; there were a number of different versions of the slip dress in the shows, all featuring bold, bright, graphic prints.
Must have footwear includes Doc Martin and Keds, for popular 90’s brands. And J. Crew, Christian Dior, Michael Kors and Kate Spade went for pointy stilettos shoes in a range of bright neon colours. And don’t forget the wedges and platforms which were also a popular choice on the catwalks, all bringing the 90’s back.
