With a touch of melancholy, we revisited the cult objects of the 90s, witnesses of a bygone era. Technological progress has made these icons of yesteryear obsolete: the flip phone has given way to the smartphone, the walkman has undergone multiple evolutions before merging into a mobile application, and so on. However, against all expectations, today we are rediscovering these 90s emblems which are resurfacing in our daily lives: vintage vinyls, watches and sneakers compete for the spotlight with current connected trends.
