During this week, we became lucky enough to feast our eyes on the re released Prada and Farfetch collaboration collection. Consisting of 155 ready-to-wear pieces throughout mens, womens, accessories and skiwear. The collection uses advanced fabrics, new construction methods and new materials, to create a fresh feel to the collection. Whilst maintaining nostalgia and true 90’s ‘vibes’, but redesigned. As much as we’d love to support it, we all know the price and quite frankly, i’m sure that exceeds most of our budgets. The Linea Rossa range has a futuristic yet slick look, which can be pulled off by a whole diversity of people, making the range inclusive to all of us too.
The collaboration runs off of the partnership of both Prada and Farfetch working together to promote the Prada and Linda Rossa line which resurrects trends from the cult collection from the 1990’s. Prada deciding to do this gives the brand publicity whilst staying on trend and relevant. These are trends that will be filtered down into smaller brands and lesser prices, and before you know it, we’re all in nylon puffer jackets. Although the carefully constructed designs are definitely worth the price, Here’s a few more collabs and trends that can ensure you get that 90’s feel, but for a lesser price tag.
JUICY COUTURE X URBAN OUTFITTERS
We all know the love and hype created in the 90’s and early 00’s for a velour tracksuit with ‘Juicy’ printed in diamonds on the back, and now Juicy Couture is back for some of that same old love. Despite the company selling itself on to Authentic Brands Groups LTD in 2013, they smelt a sense of home when 90’s trends sprung back around. After catching a glimpse of hope Juicy Couture planned a collaboration with Urban Outfitters, consisting of the classic; velour tracksuit and wide leg trouser. This collaboration can be picked up for about £45 per piece, whilst also featuring itself on the likes of Kylie Jenner and Katy Perry’s instagrams.
DELIA’S X DOLL’S KILL
Delia’s being a brand that tween girls adored in the early 90’s, it was given for them to take their chance when the trend came back around. After declaring bankruptcy in 2014, the brand was resurrected by teenage retailer Doll’s Kill, who saw the fire that could still burn inside of Delia’s fashion. Since then the brand has re released their most loved classics from the 1990’s, whilst also putting a modern twist on selected garments to keep them up to date. Also making sure they stay on trend, even with the returning trend.
Talking now something a bit more accessible and easy to find; Boohoo.com. Boohoo have now featured a tab on their homepage which allows you to see for yourself, all the items that can help you piece together the best 90’s like outfits. With the online feature staring the likes of cycling shorts, nylon jackets and jelly shoes; you’re sure to fit right in. This feature also allows trends to become more public and accessible, making sure that Boohoo as a company too are keeping you up to date with the best trends, and this for sure is one.
Even though we came to find these best trends similar elsewhere, lets not forget about the star of the show being Prada and Farfetch, the colab re directing itself to its cult following of the original collection in the 1990’s, and creating amazing pieces ready for a variety of people to wear and adore.
