MBFWA Street Style - The 2000s Back?
Fashion has definitely had it's golden moments like the latest Gucci campaign, but in contrast it's also responsible for several years which like all mid-puberty high school photos should never see the light of day. It seems like the 2000s were the awkward coming of age for fashion. For some reason the holy 90s trends didn't transcend or positively evolve into the millennium instead we were obsessed with a fascination for plastic bangles, unnecessary belts and Etnies sneakers. Which being a big sneaker fan, I am most grateful they haven't been counted in the latest sneaker trend - god help us all if they return.
But my worries for the impending fat skater shoe revival are not unfounded, the trend cycle has a wonderful but also cruel way of coming full circle. Many mums and grandma's have proudly announced that 'oh I used to have one of those back in my day, I'm sure it's still in my cupboard' and follow this statement with wearing their mum jeans proudly.
With a heavy 90s influence on the current radar it's fair to speculate the 2000s are just around the corner. So in the interest of avoiding a Brittany 07 moment, we decided we needed to prepare ourselves for the onslaught of Von Dutch. However, much to our delight it seems that the 2000s are still at bay. It's pretty well acknowledged that street style at fashion week are good indicators for what's to come and after drooling over most outfits at MBFWA last week it means we're either still firmly in the 90s or have unknowingly reverted into the JT loving & polo shirt wearing adolescents we once were. Either way, who doesn't love a little Sexy Back?
