Smells Like Teen Spirit

Thursday, 02 February 2012

Nirvana and Grunge. My So Called Life. Ripped jeans and wolf t-shirts. Britpop and the Union Jack.
Yep, we are a bunch who grew up in the 90’s.

There is a brilliant 90’s inspired shoot in the latest issue of ASOS Magazine and we were lucky enough to have one of our backpacks featured. The shoot made us so excited about this new found nostalgia for our own teen angst that we pulled together some pieces to make a few looks celebrating the denim, the plaid, the chunky knit, the heavy boots and all other things 90’s.
