It’s been building buzz for the past few seasons, but the ’90s revival, led by New York designers such as Alexander Wang, has kicked into full swing this autumn. You’ll find the sartorial legacies of Generation X everywhere in Manhattan, on the runway and on our very own UC Berkeley campus. Students have fallen for retro pieces such as light-washed denim, minimalist sportswear, Birkenstocks, sandals and trainers. Take a look at how UC Berkeley kids are getting on the ’90s throwback train and other kinds of fashion inspiration on this week’s Fashion Fridays.
