From Seattle garages to Tampa's Ybor City where I saw my first Sonic Youth concert, gazing in awe mosh pit center at girl-crush badass Kim Gordon the godmother of cool.
Two decades later...
According to 2013's catwalks; the 90s are back. I noticed first hints of it last year. When designers like Christopher Kane sent his models wearing a casual-cool finish. Kane was quoted; “I don’t want some big beehive or loads of roses sticking out” "It’s got to be a laid-back, cool, and modern“ "She’s a really youthful, nonchalant girl, listening to Nirvana,” “She doesn't care too much.”
I really like the way designers from around the world picked up on that look this season, like Dries Van Noten at Paris Spring Fashion Week. The pretty girl style with a touch of grunge.
