If anyone has benefited from '90s nostalgia, it's Chloë Sevigny. Her Opening Ceremony line pretty much banks on our undying love of babydoll dresses and grunge-style sweaters. The new face of MCM tells Elle that she gets millennials' fixation on the decade.
It is weird, but also, I get it, because I felt that way about the '70s or the '80s, like, "I was born too late! I just missed out on the hardcore scene!" Everyone feels that way; everyone wishes they were in the scene that came before them, because you can idealize it. But I also think the kids who are really into the '90s now? I agree they might be a little more obsessed, a little more upset that they missed it. And I think it’s because, if you were a teenager or a 20-something in the '90s, you were the last generation of the pre-internet age. We were the last kids who didn’t have to worry about social media; we were the last kids who had to connect, physically, to music or fashion, because if we didn’t have a mixtape or a magazine, it wasn’t like you could just Google it. Right after us, that all changed. So there’s an innocence to it, at least for them — they feel like we’re a lost generation, maybe.
Chloë Sevigny, modern-day Gertrude Stein.
