Oh, yes - 20 years are just right for a trend to first get old enough and then make a comeback. Surely the symptoms are still only visual, but I suspect that people who insist on wearing flannel and leather boots in the age of attire industry that plastic fantastic, do so as an expression of ideals rather than out of fashion snobbery. Besides, I think it's about time we rediscover the values of the early 90's anyways. We are in a dire need of some more non-profit social honesty and sincere personal identity. Because I am not just tired of fake clothes, I am tired of fake people too.
What made me hope that the 90's nostalgia is picking up? The way Anthony Kiedis and Bruce Willis's daughters (to name but a few) look like lately - perfectly real and normal, that is. No fluorescent pink, no limited editions Nike's or designer high heels, no empty eyes and pouting lips, and most importantly - no self-imposed "I am so special and important" air to them. Such a breath of fresh air.
