Indulge in the ‘90s lifestyle with Pam & Tommy series.
Why do we keep bringing the past back?
Be it for its aesthetics, music, or movies, this nostalgia around the past few decades has reached a fever pitch in recent years.
An ode to simpler times, or maybe just to praise references that have actually survived for 30 years, we are now again seeing the rise of the '90s and its leatherish universe all over our social feeds.
And maybe that's enough reason for Hulu to have released Pam & Tommy: A miniseries that takes us back to 1995 and shows us a fictionalized perspective of the then-couple Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee.
Sebastian Stan depicts Mötley Crüe’s drummer in his full rock'n'roll glam. The man is a chameleon, known for constantly changing his style – we can see him in the series with thongs, kimonos, and leather everything.
To complement that, he pairs with Lily James as Anderson, one of the '90s most enduring style icons.
Kameron Lennox, the mastermind behind the miniseries's wardrobe, was aware of the challenges of bringing the former couple's most memorable moments back to life in 2022.
Since Pam wore a lot of Alaïa, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, and Vivienne Westwood, the crew decided to go all in to find these pieces she wore at the time.
The trials of bringing a truly extensive range of ‘90s visual references to life combined the racks of thrift shops with various retro dealers, in addition to some custom-made pieces, like the leather lace-up bustier outfit made for Pam’s Barb Wire for real full Anderson's energy.
We keep telling you how, because of the nature of the material – made to outlast us and be passed down generations – it is timeless by itself, but here are a few more reasons.
With names like Willow Smith, Avril Lavigne, and Måneskin, the pop-punk revival is more alive than ever, after having already subverted the grunge style in the '00s with leather additions in the form of pants, boots, belts, and jackets.
On top of that, on the big screens, we’ve seen one of the most iconic leather apparel in cinema of all time make a comeback in the latest Matrix, and more recently, in Reeves' batmobile.
In the end, it goes beyond simple aesthetics, and by now, you should know why.
