Nineties Inspiration

“And ask what your interests are, “Who you be with?”
Things to make you smile, what numbers to dial
You gon’ be here for a while, I’m gon’ go call my crew
You go call your crew, we can rendezvous at the bar around two”

Últimamente cada vez que voy a comprar no puedo evitar sentirme atraída por aquellas prendas que mes recuerdan a los noventa. Parece que los estampados cantones vuelven a la ropa, vuelven las Jordans (J’s on my feet, so get like me). Parece que todo vuelve a desprender aquel magnífico flow, un flow que tal y como la misma palabra indica fluía, que salía con plena naturalidad. Los noventa comportaron un flow en el que era la persona quien marcaba el estilo, en el que las prendas eran lo de menos y lo que más importaba era quién y cómo las llevaba. Aquella década significó la actitud, los andares, el carisma. Hoy os traigo algunas imágenes que resumen lo que por mi significaban los noventa, algunas imágenes que me transmiten ese flow y algunos conjuntos inspirados en aquella maravillosa década.

Lately every time I go shopping I can’t avoid feeling attracted by those clothes that remember me the nineties. It seems to me that colourful patterns come back to the clothes, Jordans return (J’s on my feet, so get like me) . It seems that everything shows that magic flow again, that flow that as the word says just flowed, that just came out naturally. Nineties meant a flow in which it was the person who had the style, in which clothes were the less important and what really mattered is who and how were the clothes. That decade meant the attitude, the walking, the charisma. Today I bring you some pictures that transmit me that flow and some outfits inspired in that great decade.
