A couple take a breather in a back room, glassy-eyed and clutching bottles of water, donning bucket hats and waving damp white gloves (long live weird 90s club attire). Elsewhere, hedonistic club-goers stand in masses, queuing up in Castle Donnington, proudly repping spoof rave-geared imitations. Kellogg’s Rice Crispies? Nah. Klubber’s Nice Tripsies.
There’s no doubt that the explosion of 90s underground dance culture still permeates music, nightlife, attitudes and fashion to this day. And now, Depop have teamed up with Hackney-based digital platform/radio station NTS and Youth Club photography archive with an event to celebrate it all.
An exhibition of archive images, a body-reverberating rave soundtrack (Denis Sulta and Kesh will also DJ) and vintage clothes (which will also be available on Depop) will allow punters to rediscover the radical youth movement at London’s Corsica Studios. Bucket hats on.
Wear The Movement will be at Corsica Studios on 7th November. RSVP here.
