On our minds: nostalgia

We’d like to see it as a commentary on fast fashion's ever quickening pace – and an appreciation of eternal style.

2014 has without a doubt been a year for nostalgia. Even though references to the past are constant in fashion, 2014 brought nostalgic connections that were perhaps more prominent than usual. Not only did many designers fully embrace the 60s trend, but we saw comebacks from 90s supermodels at major runway shows along with reappropriated campaign shoots and reissued design classics. Even though nostalgia can and has been critisised as a stepping away from current issues, we’d like to see it as a commentary on fast fashion’s ever quickening pace and an appreciation of eternal style. The image is from Calvin Klein’s recent reissue of the label’s iconic 90s denim designs modelled by Kate Moss’ baby sister Lottie. More here. /Ada Källgren
