(old school) Hip Hop is trending
Forget Pete Doherty etc. Oh wait, you probably already have 3 years ago. It’s all about the 90s. And in the 90s hip hop was trending. Even though my likes involve Beverly Hills 90210, sexy denim shorts and trousers, grunge and good films, I cannot stop associating growing up with the kids in the yard listening to their bro’s hip hop while hopping hip with their jumping rope.
The Amelie Poulain shoe has gotten here first with sort of a grungy feel to it. Possibly because it’s associated with a maxi skirt combination which is pretty much what she was wearing and what today’s grunge look is all about.
Diane von Fursteberg used the words ‘hip-hop feel’ to describe her Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Even though it may not be 100% what we think of imagining hip hop, it was a try and reminded me of TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’ music video.
With Urban Outfitters going crazy on old school hip hop remixes (check out The Rub) and designers thinking hip hop when creating new lines, I have a feeling that hip hop could replace the whole grunge feel very soon.
