The late ’80s to early ’90s were considered the “hip-hop golden age,” and with it brought the emergence of distinctive hip-hop fashion.

After nearly 30 years, the aesthetic sense of that era still influences what is worn in today’s culture. To relive some of the best pieces, Japanese publication Mastered has compiled a gallery that showcases iconic pieces that were closely linked to that scene when it was hot.

From Dapper Dan, who’s also known as the sampling source of the capsule collection by Supreme and Louis Vuitton, to bootlegs that were popular at the time — Major Damage, Wicked and other nostalgic brands that flew for a moment in the early 1990s are examined — all of which utilized luxury branding as the source of their inspiration and implemented across leather jackets, track suits, denim jackets, jerseys, headwear and many more.

Check out the extensive gallery above and in case you missed it, here’s how celebs and Instagram heads are rocking Sup x LV.
