The jewelry designer's Nineties archive includes staples like Versace, John Galliano for Dior, Tom Ford for Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Chanel.
For Lynn Ban, the Nineties was a highly inspired decade in fashion: glamorous, irreverent and sexy. The jewelry designer and fashion archivist started collecting during this time, buying everything from Gucci by Tom Ford and Dior by John Galliano to heaps of Versace.
Though Ban’s vintage archive now spans Sixties, Seventies and Eighties fashion, her Nineties wardrobe is her most precious. “It was fashion the first time around for me,” she says. “I love the craftsmanship and the history.” And in case you were wondering, yes, she still wears all the pieces.
Ban spoke with WWD about her archive, her Nineties fashion heroes and her favorite cultural moments from the decade.
