Retro Revival: Return of the Trends

Walkman, Nintendo 64, Tamagotchi…only 90s kids will remember the classics! Not a 90s kid? Don’t worry, we’re bringin’ you the hottest retro looks from the past so you can style them up for yourself (no time machine needed!) In case you didn’t hear, we’re in the middle of a retro revival; from vinyl and polaroid to #TB fashion trends. Retro looks are back  – so we’ve wrapped up some of the freshest throwback styles and standout sportswear brands so you can see what you’ve been missin’ the past few decades…

If nothing else the ’80s and ’90s were bold (turning a Delorian into a time machine isn’t easy!), using primary colours for contrasting looks sure to turn heads. The brand that excelled in this and continues to change the game is none other than FILA. Bringing their iconic red, white and navy palette, Fila keeps their looks simple yet statement with colour block designs on sweatshirts, hoodies, tees and chunky sneaks.

Block colours not ya thing? Want a look that covers both ends of the style spectrum? Well then, Champion is the one for you. With 100 years of heritage behind them, Champion (creator of the hoodie!) has refined off-duty casual looks – prioritising comfort and style. Letting the label do the talkin’, their loud styles push boundaries, detailed with repeated branding and contrast taping.

Into the taping trend? Then best check out the new season gear from heritage powerhouse, Kappa. Sporting the iconic Omini logo, Kappa threads are hard to miss! From track tops to tees and everything in between, the bold contrast taping with repeated branding gives us all the throwback vibes. Kappa is THE heritage brand with a style that’s looked right at home since the ’60s.
