Nostalgia: 2015 Year In Review
Posted on 01 January 2016
2015 was a solid year for 80s and 90s culture. From the silver screen to music videos, we got to relive some iconic looks and moments from those unfaded eras. Anyone with appreciation for 80s and 90s culture would be hard pressed not to have felt some sort of nostalgia this year. Check out some of the Unfaded Era team’s favorite vintage inspired looks and videos of 2015.
This year Future had the rap game on smash. Future dropped 2 mixtapes (56 Nights and Beast Mode), earned his first number one album with DS2 and teamed with the 6 God (aka Drake if you live under a rock) to release What a Time to Be Alive.
As we wait for him to release the video to “Thought it was Drought” you can expect to see a lot of 90s and 80s street wear influence as evident in the picture above.
Fabolous is easily one of the more stylish rappers in the music industry. Last Christmas he released the Young OG Project which he described as a “very 90s inspired and 90s themed” mixtape. In the “She Wildin'” video, Loso channels the classic 90s movie House Party for a trip down memory lane. Definitely one of the dopest videos of 2015
Dope is a modern day cult classic. The film, released in June of 2015 was inspired heavily by 90s culture. The fictional band, called Awreeoh, released their video to “Don’t get deleted”. High tops, acid wash denim, and Cross Colours all make an appearance in this authentic tribute to the 90s.
2015 saw a renewed interest in Tommy Hilfiger within the Vintage community. So much so that Tommy Hilfiger has announced a 90s inspired capsule collection. Pictured here is model Gigi Hadid in a Tommy Hilfiger vintage inspired crop top.
First off – this song goes! For this video, Diplo invoked 90s nostalgia by incorporating 90s pastels and artwork in the video to “Be right there”.
The Biebs is back in one of the Unfaded Era’s favorite video’s of the year. For the video “Sorry”, Justin didn’t even have to make an appearance. Throwback jerseys, overalls, rope chains, Adidas track suits, and high waist denim; Seriously what’s not to love about this 90s and 80s inspired video.
What were some of your favorite 90s and 80s inspired videos, pictures and moments from 2015?
