90s Men Fashion: 5 Looks Everyone Is Crazy About In 2018!

From oversized jackets to ripped jeans and neon colours, the 90s are here! A look at 5 trendiest 90s looks in 2018

Published

on

Remember everything Chester and Papa Action wore on Yizo Yizo, almost twenty years ago? It’s at the crest of the style wave in 2018; from the chunky jewellery to the oversized dark shades bedazzled with golden finishes, print shirts that remain half unbuttoned, military style leather jackets and… yes, even the blonde dyed box cut is all part of it.

AKA got that last week and he nailed his interpretation of the 90s wave with a Cornici Balletto print shirt, fly black shades with blue and funky frames, and of course, the black and white side stripes to finish it all with a modern day twist.

If you are into fashion, your Explore page on Instagram is probably full of that throwback monochromatic visual aesthetic that usually comes with a matching background. From high fashion to the cool kid ecosystem, there’s definitely no lack of evidence that the 90s are here.

It’s not just the garments though,is it?  It’s the whole vibe that has swept both runways and the streets. The razor-thin eyebrows fad that peaked in mid-early 2000s is threatening to come back, and it’s all thanks to Rihanna who is sporting them on the Vogue UK cover for their September issue. If the guys aren’t spotting the nose piercing, they have hopped back on the one earring trend.

SIDE STRIPES 

Everyone has at least one pair of these, or a few, in different colours. The trend emerged summer 2017 and has evolved to include more fabrics and cuts, with denim being the latest edition to spot the famous side detail. The return of brands such as Ellesse, who have the side stripe being their trademark, has been central in driving this look back to the forefront.

OVERSIZED Ts 

Hip Hop in the 90s was all about oversized T-Shirts that were typically clad with dramatically oversized denim jeans and retro Jordans. The look is back, but with endless possibilities of interpretation. You just can’t wear oversized on baggy, please.

OVERSIZED JACKETS 

There was enough oversized jacketing for everyone in the 90s. From the oversized cult 90s oversized leather jackets loved by punk fans as part of the grunge look to the massive, boldly coloured and androgynous ones that came to define the urban aesthetic, everyone who wore them was in. In 2018, you are in again.

RIPPED & DISTRESSED JEANS 

This is one of our favourites 80s/90s fashional revivals, just because bearing some skin in summer is incredibly liberating. The height of the ripped jean craze probably happening sometime mid-2017, but the wave has persisted well into 2018.

Adidas Introduces ‘Never Made’

Published

on

Innovation is always grounded in history. Cutting-edge concepts are born from the archive. How can we design for the future without an appreciation for our past?

Introducing Never Made, a revolutionary footwear concept inspired by the past, designed for the future. Past icons from the adidas archive are reimagined, as their soles are swapped with the brand’s most innovative toolings.

RELATED: ADIDAS CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE PROPHERE

Featuring six distinct silhouettes, the newest adidas Originals footwear concept provides a window into the brand’s design process. Inspired by internal design workshops, which see the brand’s designers explore unexpected combinations, the collection is a manifestation of ideas into reality.

ADIDAS NEVER MADE SOUTH AFRICA

Tapping into three key decades of adidas archival design – the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s – the collection explores the intersection of past and future, reinventing iconic silhouettes through the lens of the brand’s most innovative products.

Instantly recognizable 70’s aesthetics are reimagined through the Line of Descent series, which sees iconic archival-inspired silhouettes merged with current day technologies. The Country x Kamanda merges aggressive all-terrain-inspired detailing from two eras.

Rounding off the Line of Descent series is the Marathon x I5923, which sees one of the brand’s earliest running silhouettes remade with BOOST technology, bringing the past into the future in unexpected ways.

ADIDAS NEVER MADE SOUTH AFRICA

Looking to one of the brand’s modern day icons, the genealogy of NMD series revisits three key sources of inspiration from the 80’s, placing the silhouettes atop NMD_R1 tooling to create the Micropacer x NMD R1, Boston Super x NMD R1, and Rising Star x NMD R1.

Turning to one of the most important decades in adidas Original’s recent history, the genetically Modified 90’s Tech series sees an iconic footwear concept, Feet You Wear and EQT, brought firmly into the future – reimagined atop BOOST tooling to create the X930 x EQT.

ADIDAS NEVER MADE SOUTH AFRICA

Inspired by our past in order to inform the future, the Never Made collection seeks to reinvent the design process through experimentation with unexpected combinations.

The Never Made collection will be available at adidas Originals stores, selected retailers and online at www.adidas.co.za on October 17th 2018.
