Please Stop This: The Return Of Raver Gear

By: Julie Gerstein / October 28, 2011

Oh God, somebody is trying to bring back rave style. Rave style. Remember that aesthetic black hole in the ’90s? The baggy pants and sports bras? The horrid, shiny synthetic fabrics? Who wants to see that come back? Well, Dutch designer Tom Nijhuis would. He’s created an entire collection inspired by a subsect of rave culture popular in the Netherlands called gabber. Gabber is characterized by thumping, fast beats — think more grinding, pulsing, intense stomping sounds than actual music. And the looks associated with it are your typical rave cave fare. Do you think this trend will come back in full? Or are you — like me — hoping it stays on the ’90s dance floor? More looks after the jump. [Dis Magazine]
