While the glorious, teenage angst-filled decade of the ‘90s was not without its share of fashion misses, it still sparks a certain rebellious nostalgia that is finding its way back into the current fashion landscape.
Today’s street style inspiration is a simple, casual take on a not-quite-grunge, not-quite-preppy look that epitomizes one of the most wearable ways to pay homage to a great decade.

Along with our wardrobes, a beauty routine update is definitely in order as we transition into fall. Below are some of the most notable beauty looks to try this season!

Helmut Lang was born and raised in the Austrian Alps. At the age of 18, he began to teach himself clothing design. A few years later, he opened a made-to-measure shop in Vienna. In 1984 he closed the shop, and two years later showed his first runway collection in Paris at Centre Georges Pompidou.
His fashion house became famous in the late 1980s for its simple but refined designs. Once Lang moved to New York, he began using unconventional materials such as rubber, feathers, and metallic fabrics to redefine the silhouette of the 1990s and early 2000s. As one of the most important designers of our time, his work left an undeniable imprint on contemporary culture and his influence continues to reverberate among the fashion community today.
Lang's apparel collection for men and women focuses on refined and elegant pieces, such as slim suits in black or white, an exquisite denim collection, and the use of high-tech fabrics. Lang is known for his minimalist, deconstructivist, and often severe yet sophisticated designs.
Breathe new life back into your look with sleek jackets and fitted blazers from the Lang Men’s Collection. Polished button-ups pair perfectly with slim and modern denim. For a more casual look, the simple and chic tees pair seamlessly with stylish sweatshirts and hoodies.
The Lang women's collection offers a fresh and versatile take on fashion for any occasion. Featuring clean lines and chic concepts, from trendy jackets and skirts to sweaters and tops made for layering, you are sure to be on trend and turning heads.
One of the many things we look forward to in the fall is a rich, saturated color palette, particularly in shades inspired by wine. You don’t need to be a sommelier to appreciate this abundantly flattering hue of red!
Whether you add in a little or a healthy serving of wine in your fall wardrobe, one thing’s for sure—these shades of Bordeaux, burgundy and merlot are the perfect way to toast a new season ahead!
The Bardot Group was first established in Australia in 1996. Bardot is proud to have become a major player in the Australian retail fashion sector in such a short time, and thrilled that the brand’s potential is now being recognized in key international markets. Retailers are enjoying success with Bardot in Asia, Europe, Canada, the Middle East, New Zealand, Japan, and the USA.
Bardot is coquettish, sensual, and sophisticated. Perfect styling has a balance of femininity and naughtiness. It’s about being brave enough to express your own style. Match mood to outfit. Own the trends. Be bold in rich colors or float in soft frilly fabrics. Whoever you are Bardot knows style and can help bring out the glamour in you.
“There is a wonderful saying—‘When the world hands you lemons, make lemonade.’ So, in ’96 when I returned home from overseas with no job, no apartment, and no car, I dared to dream, sold my wardrobe, and started a label that would stand the test of time.” - Carol Skoufis, Founder
