Return of the Grunge Era and Doc Martens

27 11 2008

I have been spotting the plaid trend everywhere in Tokyo.  The 1990s is back for sure.  Fashion is a funny time machine.  Hopefully this nineties revival will be a bit more refined and more chic.  I can’t take the over sized lumberjack plaid flannel look.  I also have been seeing lots of Doc Martens on my latest trip and on many fashion blogs from all over the world.  They are back!

I think this look is such a cool take on the eighties and the nineties.  Lace, leather jacket, and of course Doc Martens.  I love how she layers all of her pieces and the big scarf added a nice touch of volume.  This is from Stockholm Street Style fashion blog.  Thank you for the image.  Check out their blog here.

I also think that Doc Martens got their big push when the famous British model Agyness Deyn wears them everywhere.

Marc Jacobs really captured the mood of the era so well in his 1993 collection for Perry Ellis.
