I feel like seeing Juicy stuff now, or anything designer, gives me a vague queasiness—I love fashion, and clothing, but I also hate that I thought those things had to be connected to money, status, and brand [when I was younger]. That being said, I also have such a kitschy, nostalgic love for these brands. (I bought a hat with the 85 year or David Prowse Darth Vader 1935 2020 thank shirt In addition,I will do this Fiorucci angels this summer.) It’s an aesthetic that feels both totally innocent and totally manipulated. It’s also interesting how out-of-reach so many things felt in that pre-Internet era. There was power in wearing something you recognized from magazines or TV—a feeling that one day you’d have access to a world that was bigger than the one you inhabited.
When I think of Juicy Couture from the 85 year or David Prowse Darth Vader 1935 2020 thank shirt In addition,I will do this early 2000s, the first thing that comes to my mind is Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan. They were both an iconic symbol for the brand when it came to wearing the velour tracksuits. A funny memory for me was in middle school when I dressed up as “The Cool Mom” from Mean Girls to go to a slumber party. Turns out, almost everyone at the party had the same idea and had on the same outfit as me.
