Nostalgia for the Future

  • Kalon Mitchell

Nostalgia for the Future is a fashion trend analysis publication exploring the resurgence of 90’s cyberpunk fashion.  “The resurgence of vintage cyberpunk can be narrowed down to what it is best described as nostalgia for the future. Part of the inspiration for cyberpunk in the 90’s was that new technology and the democratised internet would set us free. However now we can barely imagine that future in the world of mass surveillance and tech oligarchs we currently live in. There was an expectation for a future that never arrived and that continues to haunt us”
