Pitchfork 2014… 90s Florals and Flannel

July 23, 2014

Lots of the street-style I saw at Pitchfork this weekend was inspired by the 90s. Makes sense, given that the fashion cycle recycles every 20 years. Florals and flannels seem to have achieved timeless fashion reference status, as seen in recent 3.1 Phillip Lim and Saint Laurent collections.

Of course, I find it much more exciting to see what real girls are wearing on the streets. Don’t you?
