Summer at the Mall in the 1990's


Lomography is travelling through time this week so we thought we'd share some more vintage treasures from the timewarp! Here are some rad photos of a summer day at an American shopping mall in the 90's that feature enough denim apparel and mullet haircuts to last you a lifetime. (Plus, the Fresh Prince of Belair!)

Remember when you had to beg your parents for some cash before heading to the mall with friends? No? Well, then let these photos refresh your memory. In true consumerist fashion (pun intended), here’s how America spent their 1990 summer: shopping at the mall!

Seeing the dated architecture, crimped hair, and indoor smokers really brings us back to the 90’s! You’ll also see people buying posters to hang up on their bedroom walls, a kid obsessed with Coke, Ray-Ban shoppers, and crop tops. On men!

Do you have any photos of your youthful days at the mall? Perhaps on your way to the cinema, arcade, or food court? We’d love to see them!

If not, we’ll leave you with this photo of some 90’s icons: Michael Jordan, Kid’N Play, Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince of Belair, Will Smith!
