Artist Captures Fashion Trends of the 20th Century across the Globe


Artist Hans Eijkelboom has been photographing the public candidly all around the world for decades, identifying the trends of each place he went to and presenting them in the grids you see below. All of these photographs have now been put together in his new book called People of the Twenty-First Century.

He pretty much captures it all, from a sea of people wearing red coats to lots of manly men wearing girly louis Vuitton bags. Oh, and don't forget the all denim look...

These outfits are so 90's it's off the charts!
