Super Sharp

See this tribute to the garage and jungle rave fashion of the 1990s.

The 1990s jungle scene was loud, proud and unapologetic, not just in the sound, but in style. Every subculture creates its own uniform, and for these ravers, it was Italian labels: Moschino, Versace and Gucci, slung together with a pair of Reebok Classics.

‘Super Sharp’, an exhibition created by curator Tory Turk and Saul Milton (Chase without Status), is a tribute to rave culture fashion. Compiled mainly from Milton’s own collection, it’s an ocular attack of colour and love for the 1990s.

Moschino outfits are strapped up like artworks, each with listening points where visitors can have throwback tracks like ‘Garage Girls’ blasted into their ears. Clubby, lens-flare-filled photos capture the clothes in action: people covered head-to-toe in Moschino logos, posing like proud kings and queens. And Goldie’s in there, he was always there: godfather to that wavey, ravey crowd. If you were part of it, you’ll be overwhelmed by nostalgia at this tiny time capsule of a show. Either that, or the realisation that your scene is considered ‘vintage’
