Sometimes I think my love for 80s/90s nostalgia can be a problem. Often I find myself daydreaming about the little things that I remember about my childhood. I guess it has to be fact that fashion really moves in 20 year cycles and now the 90s are up for discussion and memory recall.
There are few things that are still in tact when it comes to my current life and my life 15 + years ago. However one of the things that I have still remained in love with is Swatch watches. In the 80s and 90s they were the “go-to” watches for the preteen and teen set. When they first opened a Swatch store near me I lost my mind. Just the idea that there were that many designs all in one place that I had to choose was blowing my mind. I fell off the train for a while in my college years but just a few years ago Kid Robot announced a collaboration with the watch brand. I scooped one up by the artist Tilt. Let’s all remember how awesome Swatch’s are and check them out now cause they still rule!
I had this exact one!! from the *92 Collection
Man, I wish I had a collection that looked like this. I remember everyone wanted the clear one.
I had this one too! For the ’96 Olympic Games
Here is my current collection: Corto Maltese from 2001 F/W, KidRobot w/ Tilt, Cabaret Voltaire (2004)
